Hedge Funds Provide Biofuel Company With Bridge Loan

New York (HedgeCo.net) – Hedge funds Third Point and Greenlight Capital have made a short-term loan of $19.4 million to BioFuel Energy Corp., in which they hold shares, MarketWatch reports.

With a 12.4% interest rate, a 4% fee and and repayments by March 24, 2011, the Securities and Exchange Commission reports that the bridge loan is secured by an equity stake in a BioFuel subsidiary.

The two hedge funds own 69% of BioFuel’s outstanding common shares combined, MarketWatch said. Third Point and Greenlight stand to make profits if BioFuel does not produce the payments.

With a debt of $212 million, BioFuel has lost $57 million since 2007.
