Convertible loan note gets backing from family offices

Lightpoint Medical, which develops tools for cancer detection in surgery, has issued a £12 million convertible loan note to fund its business.

The convertible was structured by Saturn Investors, hoping to get backing from family offices for similar deals. The convertible offers investors a yield of 8%. After 3-5 years the loan gets repaid at a premium or converted into shares at a potential 60% discount.

The Saturn initiative, led by David Toplas, avoids the dilution of equity funding rounds, as described by Family Capital earlier this month.
