Available to all industries selling products to quality purchasers. Accounts Receivable Factoring transfers the credit risk of its receivable to the lender or third party and allow the company to benefit from immediate cash flow created from factoring of those receivables. There are three types of factoring commonly offered: old line factoring, discount factoring, spot factoring and construction factoring.
Old Line Factoring – the standard form of factoring in America today, transferring credit risk and advancing on the invoice to the owner over night.
Discount Factoring – structured for development stage companies, a fee is charged for the purchase of the assignment of the credit risk to the lender and the cost of funds for the advance are charged as one combined fee called a commission.
Spot Factoring – designed for start ups or firms simply in need of immediate quick cash. Spot factoring does not require multi year contracts and provides a company with flexability of selling invoices to the lender when working capital is needed.
Construction Factoring – factoring of accounts receivable within the construction industry where there is no bonding issues.
A facility allowing a company to liquefy its accounts receivable at extremely low bank rates. Accounts Receivable Financing is a valuable tool to provide consistent cash flow to any company with quality receivables.

Probably the foremost loan structure in America. An asset based loan consists of components for receivable financing, equipment financing, inventory financing, CapX (a facility allowing the borrowing company to buy new equipment beyond that which is currently on the facility and in use. An asset based loan is generally priced low because it is generally offered only to high quality companies with a responsible base of business. These type of loans are what we strive to achieve for the higher quality companies. Rates range from LIBOR plus to prime plus 2%. A typical proposal would read as follows: An $8 million dollar revolving line of credit secured by the accounts receivable with an advance rate of 85%. A $2 million dollar line of credit secured by the current equipment based upon the supporting appraisal and a loan against the orderly liquidation value of no more than 60%. Inventory at 75% of cost. A CapX facility of $1 million dollars, the personal guarantee of the principals is required except if a real public company.

On many occasions a real estate acquisition or senior loan requires that a bridge loan be made from a second lender to complete the transaction or to provide the necessary funds to pay for the soft costs of the acquisition or to pay for environmental studies associated thereto. Bridge loans have assisted in the acquisition of many fine properties. Typical interest rates are prime and will vary greatly depending upon the quality and location of the property, the urgency of the loan and the amount negotiated by the lender.
The requirements generally are exactly the same as any bank would require. Typically the interest rates will be prime plus (in today’s market) with a 70% loan to value ratio (LTV).
On many occasions we have successfully raised the equity portion or the amount required between the anticipated debt and the price of the property, therefore allowing the purchaser to complete his transaction with the least amount of his personal cash. In these situations the equity participants almost always negotiate an ownership of the property as well as an interest to be paid to the investors.

Background: Banks and other financial institutions often cannot serve the funding needs of smaller business customers without challenging their established lending criteria. Many higher-risk, low-and no-asset small business borrowers may not qualify for traditional financing forms and, consequently, face critical challenges in meeting cyclical and emergency financial pressures. As a result their business growth is restrained.
The lender is not a bank and does not lend money for a fixed term. The lender busy current and future quality credit card receivables at a discount, thereby providing the merchant with a lump sum of cash when the contract is approved. The merchant agrees to pay the Lender a fixed percent of each day’s credit card receipts until the obligation is satisfied (up to 20%). The obligation is the amount advanced plus the factoring fee. An example is a merchant who accepts $30,000 with a factoring fee of 32%. The merchant pays the lender $39,600, which is formally called the “Right to Receive” or “RTR.” In all cases for all products, the RTR is the total amount paid back over the term of the agreement and is referred to as gross revenue for the lender. Since the lender has complete control over the merchant’s credit card processing receipts, the lender is able t extract the pre-agreed amount at the end of each business day, resulting in a daily payback.

Clasically, the export buyer posts a letter of credit to pay for the goods along with his purchase order. Typically, a back-to-back letter of credit is issued paying the supplier for the goods under specific secure terms to assure delivery as required and defined on either the purchase order or the letter of credit. In this form of financing the broker or seller receives his proportionate profit after borrowing the funds required to pay for the goods, land transportation, ocean freight, insurance and any duties that may be required to get the product to the buyer therefore completing a transaction payment.

Loans to Public Companies are identical to corporate loans and include accounts receivable, machinery and equipment, unfinished goods inventory, finished goods inventory, real estate, etc. The primary difference is in the due diligence requirements. In today’s public market, all public companies must file 10Q’s and 10K’s which are audited, therefore, there is no issue of audited financial statements. Most public companies which have achieved some semblance of revenue and have achieved a positive net worth does not require a personal guarantee of the president as he is an employee of the corporation. We would still ask for a validity guarantee.

Payroll Financing provides a company with an unusual and very helpful form of financing. It provides for the weekly payroll to be advanced to the company by the lender and is recovered from the receivables 30 to 45 days later. Therefore, a company does not have to struggle seeking cash flow to make payroll every week. This type of financing is exceptionally helpful in the construction industry, the staffing industry, for hospitals and medium to large-scale companies. In most cases we try to finance not only the payroll, but the accounts receivable therefore providing the payroll lender with added security that he will recover his funds if the customer has his receivables financed then we have to establish an inter-creditor agreement between the current receivable financing source and the payroll financing company. Advantages of this financing can be quite helpful to almost any industry.
