Founded in 2015, Grannenfelt Finance Oy is an independent financial solutions consulting company. Our clients are Finnish and Nordic SMEs/corporations as well financial institutions. We solve the financial challenges of our corporate clients by using various financial instruments that serve the client’s growth plan. Such include grants, debt and (quasi) equity from both the private and public sectors, including from the EU. We provide our institutional clients with expertise on how to leverage EU financial instruments for strategic and economic benefit. We advise e.g. banks and investors on different types of EU risk-sharing and securitization structures. Funding and structuring opportunities are increasingly offered outside the conventional banking and finance sector. We effectively combine such opportunities to serve the operational needs of our clients. AIM Capital Group is a Finnish company with two business areas: Financial Advisory and Asset Management. The company, formed in a merger in late 2019, serves both corporate and professional investors clients.

  3. 3 3 Uusia päivityksiä rahoitusmahdollisuuksiin Valtioneuvosto on 15.10. antamallaan asetuksella

    mahdollistanut yrityksen kehittämisavustuksen myöntämisen ns. väliaikaisena valtiontukena, jonka yrityskohtainen enimmäismäärä on 800 000 euroa (de minimis-rajoitteen ulkopuolella). ▪ Kehittämisavustusta voivat nyt väliaikaisesti saada myös sellaiset yritykset, joille avustusta ei aiemmin olisi ollut mahdollista myöntää normaaliajan EU:n valtiontukisääntelyn 200 000 € de minimis -kiintiön täyttymisen vuoksi ▪ Muutokset ovat väliaikaisia ja ne ovat voimassa 19.10.-31.12.2020 ▪ Kyseessä ei ole uusi tukimuoto eikä yleistuki eli yrityksen kehittämisavustuksen myöntämisen edellytykset eivät ole muuttuneet ▪ Kehittämistoimenpiteisiin liittyviä palkka-, konsultointi-, matka-, messuosallistumis- ja vastaavia menoja voidaan tukea enintään 50 %:lla avustuksen perusteena olevista menoista ▪ HUOM! Palkkakustannuksiin voidaan lukea kaikkien niiden työntekijöiden palkat, keiden työajasta valtaosa kuluu uuden kehitysprojektin työtehtävissä (palkkakatto 4500 € Etelä-Suomen alueella, muualla Suomessa ”kohtuullistetaan”). Yli 10% yrityksen osakkeista omistavien henkilöiden palkkakustannuksia ei kuitenkaan voida huomioida. ▪ Pidämme tätä merkittävänä mahdollisuutena pk-yrityksille ja autamme tarvittaessa niin avustus- ja tukihakemuksien kuin muiden rahoitusprojektien kanssa. Tiimimme yhteystiedot löydät tämän esityksen lopusta. Grannenfelt Financen uutiskirje Rahoitusmarkkinoilla on viimeisen puolen vuoden aikana tapahtunut erityisen paljon muutoksia, jotka ovat ajoittain tulleet voimaan nopeallakin aikataululla. Oman yrityksen liiketoiminnan pyörittämisen lisäksi muutoksissa saattaa ajoittain olla vaikea pysyä ajan tasalla. Grannenfelt Finance seuraa tiiviisti rahoitusmarkkinoiden kehitystä ja tiedottaa ajankohtaisista muutoksista asiakkailleen uutiskirjeen muodossa. Jos haluat jatkossa vastaanottaa uutiskirjeen, välitättehän meille sähköpostiosoitteenne osoitteeseen sanna.laine@grannenfeltfinance.fi tai info@grannenfeltfinance.fi.

    Banks ▪ Bank-focused market ▪ New operators haven’t broken to the market because of the banks ▪ The various support measures have favoured the bank- focused market for the past 3 years ▪ The SME market is extremely dependant of the regulatory changes ▪ If the credit policy is tightened further, a large portion of the project in development will remain unfinanced → there is a need for alternative financiers … which has left little room for alternative financiers to emerge November 20 ~70% Bank loans ~80% Controlled by 3 largest banks Market shares of credit institutions – Loans to non-financial corporations External funding of SMEs in Europe Highly bank centric market dominated by 3 largest players Grannenfelt Finance

    Bodies in Finland ▪ Ilmastorahasto Oy (climate fund) • Investment strategy still unclear • Will operate under the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment (TEM) • Only direct investments to companies & funds ▪ Oppiva Invest • Operates under the Ministry of Education and Culture • Private equity investments to companies in the education industry ▪ Finnvera • Finnvera’s quarantees (Fast Track, SME quarantee & start quarantee) • Finnvera loan published 14.9.2020 • In co-operation with other funding partners • Meant for e.g. M&A activities ▪ TESI (Teollisuussijoitus) • New Venture Bridge programme: • 10% interest • 20% discount in the next emission • Stabilisation program for mid-sized companies (over 10M€) • 10% interest • 10% discount in the next emission ▪ Business Finland • Temporary RDI loan programme (corona crisis) • Easier loan terms in comparison to the regular RDI loan which are mainly aimed for exporting companies • The application period is extented until the end of November 2020 • No other new grant programmes are open on top of the “regular” November 20 Grannenfelt Finance
  9. 9 9 Yritysten kehittämisavustusmuutokset & kustannustuen uudistuminen ▪ Voidaan myöntää

    myös yrityksille, jotka ovat keväällä 2020 saaneet ns. korona-avustusta • HUOM! Tukea ei voi hakea samalle projektille ja hyväksyttää samoja kustannuksia kuin kevään ns. ”korona-avustuksessa” ▪ Haku alkoi 19.10. ja loppuu 31.12.2020 ja sitä haetaan ELY-keskusten kautta ▪ Yritys/konserni voi saada avustusta 800k euroon asti ▪ Valtiontuissa huomioitavaa on, että niitä säätelee normaali konsernirajoite: Jos yrityksillä on toisiinsa nähden osakeomistuksen tai päätöksenteon kautta määräysvalta, käsitetään nämä konserniin kuuluviksi tahoiksi • koko konsernin saamat avustukset voivat siis olla maksimissaan 800k€ ▪ Jatkossa myös vaikeuksissa vuoden 2020 alussa olleet yritykset (2019 tilinpäätös tappiollinen) voivat saada avustusta • Tukea myönnetään nyt pk-yrityksille, joiden liikevaihto/taseen loppusumma on maks. 10M€ ja työntekijöiden lukumäärä on alle 50 henkilöä ▪ Valmisteilla on yritysten kustannustukea koskeva ja sitä jatkava lakimuutos ▪ Lakimuutos tulee näillä näkymin voimaan joulukuussa 2020 ja suunnitelman mukaan haku avattaisiin yrityksille joulukuun lopussa ▪ Kustannustuen ehtona olisi edelleen, että sekä toimialan että yrityksen liikevaihto on laskenut merkittävästi • Aiemmassa kustannustukilaissa tukeen oikeuttavaksi toimialan liikevaihdon laskuksi määriteltiin 10 prosenttia ja yrityksen 30 prosenttia. Rajoja tarkastellaan uudelleen lakimuutoksen valmistelun aikana ja niitä voi olla perusteltua madaltaa, riippuen toimialojen liikevaihdon kehityksestä valittavalla tukikaudella. ▪ Tukea haetaan tälläkin kertaa Valtionkonttorin kautta Kehittämisavustusta myös ns. vaikeuksissa oleville yrityksille Yritysten kustannustuki uudistuu ja jatkuu November 20 Grannenfelt Finance

  22. 22 22 Payments Against the Cost of the Development ✓

    Costs of Development = What is needed to achieve the goal with the actions described in the work plan ✓ Rules vary between the instruments, even CAPEX is sometimes accepted. but in general: ✓ Travel costs, cost of staff working on this particular project, IP, Equipment, Subcontracting, materials, parts, goods and services, renting a specific space for R&D as defined in the plan ✓ Your laptop, phone, rent of the offices, software etc. you use also for other work are considered as indirect costs ✓ Indirect costs are covered by e.g. 20 % “overhead” paid on top of all the direct costs expect subcontracting ✓ Marketing & Sales usually not eligible in grant financing ✓ Advance payment at the time of the signing up to 30% ✓ Advance payment during the project up to 60% ✓ Remaining payment after the final report is approved min. 10% ✓ Project purchases must be: ✓ Well-justified ✓ Tendered ✓ Documented ✓ If you are a party in the funding contract, you cannot be a subcontractor for the project ✓ e.g. You are not permitted to services/products to the other project parties during the project period November 20 Grannenfelt Finance 4 Reporting

  24. 24 24 Revenue under 10M€ - Does the Company Stand

    a Chance? FORMETRIS (Ranska) ▪ Employs around 20 people ▪ Revenue approx. 2,4M€ ▪ Project duration: 10/2015 – 7/2017 ▪ Project partner: Know Center GmbH (research center) ▪ Project: My Learning Booster: a proactive, individualised digital solution to boost the impact of training Eurostars Applicant Example “MLB is an e-mentoring solution allowing digital individualised coaching. The project therefore involves the development of an individualised digital set of services that mentors trainees in the months before and following a training course, helping them to put new knowledge into action on-the-job. The intelligence of the system and its individualisation are ensured by a pluridisciplinary approach mobilising artificial intelligence, psychometrics and social sciences.” November 20 5 Example Cases Grannenfelt Finance
  25. 25 25 Start-up & Consortium Project ARTOMATIX ▪ Project budget:

    approx. 3,3M€ ▪ EU contribution: 2,4M€ ▪ Project: An Artificial Intelligence Enhancing Video Quality Locally to Limit Internet Traffic Tied to Video Streaming ▪ Project partners & participants: • THEO Technologies NV (Partner) – Belgium • ARTOMATIX LIMITED (Coordinator) – Ireland • STICHTING NEDERLANDSE PUBLIEKE OMROEP (Partner) - Netherlands • RADIO E TELEVISAO DE PORTUGAL SA (Partner) – Portugal • DE VLAAMSE RADIO EN TELEVISIEOMROEPORGANISATIE NV (Partner) - Belgium FTI Example ▪ Video streaming consists in the encoding, transcoding, delivering, decoding & displaying of videos on smartphones, tablets, PCs, smart TVs & consoles. Videos distributed “over-the-top” (OTT) are streamed rather than distributed through traditional networks (broadcast, pay TV) and distributors (cable, satellite). OTT is a vibrant $25bn market (2016) poised for spectacular growth: by 2025, it will reach $129bn, a 5.2x increase driven by powerhouses like Netflix and YouTube. ▪ While developed countries are challenged to address this surge, half of the World’s population still doesn’t have the Internet and is unlikely to be able to stream content when they get it, reinforcing the “Digital Divide”. Reducing this burden will lead to a faster, cheaper and more stable Internet. It will slash content delivery costs, which reach millions of dollars a month for media companies. It will result in major savings for Internet providers that invest ~$300bn/year in infrastructure or give them the opportunity to achieve much more for a similar investment. ▪ Artomatix’s goal is to decrease video streaming traffic by 80% while retaining video resolution and increasing quality. To do so, Artomatix and THEO will develop ENHANCEplayer, a solution that leverages Deep Learning to automatically increase the resolution and quality of videos on consumer devices.
