No Bugs in This Deal

The Company
The company is a California-based sub-contractor of fumigation services. Its clients are both commercial and residential.

The Situation
For three years, the company suffered losses such that the balance sheet was upside down and the company was in violation of bank covenants. In addition to having to exit its bank, the company needed a larger line in anticipation of increased sales. The deal was referred to Celtic Capital by a broker.

The Solution

In an initial review of the deal, the receivables did not generate what was owed to the bank. As such, the owner personally paid down a portion of the payoff to make the deal work. Celtic Capital came in with a $1,000,000 Accounts Receivable Line of Credit which was larger than the bank line, as requested by the business owner.

The Result

This business is somewhat seasonal and picks up significantly after the rainy season. As we move into summer, with Celtic Capital’s larger credit line, the business owner is now in the position to take advantage of his projected increase in sales.
