APS Bank touts new Jet Pack as the survival kit for local businesses

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, APS Bank has launched the APS Jet Pack, which it decribes as a survival kit for local businesses experiencing cash flow problems


APS Bank has launched the APS Jet Pack, another initiative in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

The APS Jet Pack is the survival kit for local businesses experiencing cash flow problems. The loan will provide working capital assistance to cover a number of costs - such as salaries and rental, energy and water bills and acquisition of material/stock for business continuity.

The APS Jet Pack benefits from the support of the MDB COVID-19 Guarantee Scheme launched by the Malta Development Bank through the provision of a Bank Guarantee for €350,000,000 covered by a government guarantee issued by the Ministry of Finance.

Features at a glance:

  • Up to €8 million depending on the size of the business.
  • No charges and fees from the Bank.
  • Rate starting from 2.75% (inclusive of guarantee fee) fixed for a loan of four years’ duration for an SME.
  • Commitment to pass on to the customer any additional governmental aid, such as interest rate subsidy, once this becomes available.
  • Repayment period of up to four years, which can be extended to six years on a case-by-case basis (terms and conditions apply).
  • Six-month moratorium on both the interest payments and capital repayments (possibly extended to one year on a case-by-case basis).

To discuss options, eligibility and application modalities, customers are invited to reach out to their Relationship Manager. Alternatively, they can call APS Contact Centre on 2122 6644 (Monday to Saturday 8:00 to 20:00) or email to the COVID-19 Business Response Team at [email protected]
