Our Equipment-Only Loan Funds Legal Settlements

The Company
Three CNC machine shops related through common ownership. Two are located in Texas; the other, in Michigan.

The Situation
When the three shops were acquired about four years ago, the sale was not done properly which led to losses and lawsuits. There were also a number of liens not satisfied properly when the sale took place. When settlements were finally reached, funds were needed to close out the legal issues.

The Solution
Celtic Capital was asked to do an Equipment-Only Loan as the current lender was exiting the lending business. We provided a $1,500,000 Equipment-Only Loan which funded a shortfall to cover the lawsuits and an EIDL payoff and, we arranged for subordination of two additional EIDL.

The Result
The shops do quite a bit of work for the aerospace industry. That combined with some recent new business they’ve landed is leading to expectations of a dramatic increase in revenue this year.
