HomeSend draws on facility for second time

Wameja has met the second drawdown request from their HomeSend JV with Mastercard. The August H1 update revealed HS requested a further €5m on top of the original €2m in June; a 70% increase to the funds currently utilised by HS for funding the pre-payment timing gaps in its settlement model. Wameja has now supplied €1.8m as its share of this second tranche of liquidity funding. The funds will be used to support an anticipated rise in gross value flows following several implementations, which went live on the HS global payment hub during the last quarter. At the same time, Wameja confirms that the loan facility has been shortened by nine months, with no obligation to extend the term beyond March 2020. Third-party funding alternatives continue to be evaluated as the scale of the platform will grow beyond the funding resources available; by the progress this year, we don’t expect that to take long.
