A Strong Relationship with This Business Owner Leads Us to Accommodate a Smaller Deal

The Company
This is an Indiana-based manufacturer of all aspects of commercial and industrial sheet metal installations. It’s been in operation for nearly fifty years.

The Situation
The Company was recently purchased by a public company, the owner being someone we’ve worked with on two prior deals. This deal was for an Equipment Loan to pay off the note held by the prior owner.

The Solution
To satisfy the need for operating money, we provided a $200,000 Equipment Loan. We came in side-by-side with a New York-based receivables lender that handles the progressive billing aspect of the financing package.

The Result
The owner of the public company purchases small, privately held companies that are doing well and have owners looking to exit. In our first deal together, we financed the acquisition of that company. In our second deal, as is the case with this sheet metal manufacturer, we financed equipment.

We normally don’t do deals this small but because we’ve done two prior deals and have a strong relationship with this owner, we accommodated this request. Interesting to note, the owner has already approached us with a fourth deal.
