Job Shop “Works” Out a Deal at Vendor’s Request

The Company

This is a twenty-year-old California-based metal and plastic fabrication job shop.

The Situation

Behind on payroll taxes and to trade vendors, the Company’s largest vendor suggested the owner find outside financing to get caught up and for additional working capital. The vendor referred this owner to us.

The Solution

We came in with $1,300,000 Accounts Receivable Line of Credit and Equipment Loan to take care of this borrower’s immediate needs and to smooth out cash flow. The deal required quick turnaround and we met the owner’s request of an end-of-month deadline.

The Result

This Company is not highly leveraged and does reasonably well. Its year end is May 31. So far, it’s having a decent year and is on pace to do slightly better this year than in years past.
