With a parent company based outside the United States, this rapidly growing five-year-old company was having trouble accessing working capital to fund its growth. The lack of working capital was hampering their ability to hire qualified engineers, which then limited their ability to onboard new clients and take on new contracts.
Commercial Funding met with the U.S.-based management team to learn about the business model, customer base, and the intercompany relationship with the foreign parent company.
This meeting resulted in CFI having a full understanding of the operation, services provided, and a comfort level with the U.S. management. And because CFI is intimately familiar with the oil and gas industry, we already had significant experience with some of the company’s account debtors allowing us to provide the facility they needed to grow their business.
It was only two weeks between the time a letter-of-intent (LOI) was issued to first funding.
The invoice factoring line and relationship with CFI has:
- Allowed the company to take on two new, large contracts, essentially doubling their previous year’s revenue.
- Provided additional financial stability and improved their cash flow.
