Another Case of Fallout From COVID-19

The Company
This Company is a California-based powder coating job shop for the automotive and other industries.

The Situation
In 2020, the Company’s revenue dropped due to COVID-19. Sales stagnated and even though they started coming back in 2021, due to covenant violations, its bank asked the owner to find new financing.

The Solution
Celtic Capital was called in because the owner was looking for a relationship with less or no covenants and more flexibility to accommodate the Company’s anticipated growth. We provided a $1,250,000 Accounts Receivable Line of Credit and a $250,000 Inventory Line of Credit to replace the bank and for additional working capital.

The Result
The Company has been turning the corner in terms of increasing the top line and has made changes to increase profitability. With the new, more flexible Line (not having to manage to covenants), expectations are that the Company will have an easier time meeting its growth objectives.
