Sourced a unique “one off” debtor funding facility (disclosed invoice discounting) for a civil engineering and construction business with annual turnover of approximately $30M.
Restructure Finance Facilities for Acquisition
Restructured various finance facilities for a small business acquisition by MBO. Involving 4 new owners with multiple loan facilities to address their investment, commercial and business requirements.
Invoice Discount Facility for Manufacturer
Sourced a $5M confidential invoice discount facility for a manufacturing company that was not provided by its previous Commercial Bank, despite there being large amounts of security available.
Sourced $2M equipment finance for a rural stock feeds manufacturer that was establishing a new business in a regional area.
A company had no more funds apart from one single retention that was just coming due. Arranged to fund this which in turn bought time to put in place another blended working capital / debtor finance facility with a non bank lender.
Sourced a unique $300K blended Trade / Debtor finance facility from a Private funder. This allowed the business to restart sales, time to complete its tax returns and lodge a significant R & D grant. This in turn was funded and most creditors arrears brought back in line.
Due to previous losses the company was unable to source funding from its current Bank. Sourced a $400K trade line from a private funder. The company was able to regenerate sales leading into its peak season and generate sufficient revenues and profits to return to stability.
