Ancona 03-02-2016

UNI.CO. has signed a counter-guarantee agreement with the European Investment Fund within COSME 2014-2020 Programme, which has been established under Regulation (EU) No 1287/2013 of the European Parliament and the Council: this agreement enables more and more UNI.CO. to enhance access of finance for SMEs in Marche Region and the relative financing will be made possible thanks to the Guarantee that has been provided by COSME and the European Fund for Strategic Investment (EFSI) set up under the Investment Plan for Europe. The purpose of EFSI is to help support financing and implementing productive investments in the European Union and to ensure increased access to financing. The product offered is addressed to any SME (also established out of Marche Region, even if inside the European Union), which is not an “undertaking in difficulty” (within the meaning of the Commission Regulation (EU) No C(2014) 651/2014 of 17 June 2014) and needs funding for (A) investment in tangible and/or intangible assets; and/or (B) working capital (relative transactions shall have a fixed repayment schedule or be a Revolving Transaction). Any type of eligible debt financing must have a minimum scheduled maturity of not less than 12 months as well as a maximum amount of principal committed to be available for utilisation of not more than EUR 150.000. With regards to the application procedure, the enterprise can contact directly UNI.CO. officers in its own area (all the e-mail addresses and phone numbers are included in the section “”)
