Who are we ?
IMBC Capital Risque, established in 1994 in the framework of the European programme “Objectif n° 1 Hainaut”, focuses on mezzanine finance. Following the success of this initial programme, an additional budget was granted to it in the framework of the European programme “Phasing Out de l’Objectif n° 1 Hainaut”.
These two initial European parcels were completed successfully: all of the objectives were surpassed both in terms of execution and socio-economic repercussions.
At present, IMBC Capital Risque acts according to the same criteria as the parent company.
From 1994 to 2008, based on financial resources of €51,000,000 it has approved:
- 476 financing packages
- amounting to €74,000,000
- benefiting 265 companies
We would emphasise that the 74 million euros invested in SMEs in the course of these two programmes contributed to the execution of investment programmes amounting to a total of €550,000,000, which is a multiplying factor of more than 7, testifying to the leverage of these measures.
