Tank Truck Hauler Is With Celtic Capital for the Long (or Short) Haul

The Company
This is a California-based tank truck hauler of gasoline, diesel, oil and other related products.

The Situation
The Company was looking to exit a factoring relationship and some high-priced merchant cash advance (MCA) loans. An intermediary assisting the Company contacted Celtic Capital to see if it would be a fit for us. Drowning in MCA payments, but with a lot of business and high growth potential, the Company was cash-strapped. An additional challenge was that the Company had a very inexperienced in-house accounting person. Communication issues and basic terminology misunderstandings were actually harming the business.

The Solution
Working with the Company’s CPA (who was brought in to get the accounting issues squared away), Celtic Capital provided a $500,000 Accounts Receivable Line of Credit and a $240,000 Equipment Loan to pay off the various lenders and provide working capital to grow the business.

The Result
With sales expected to ramp up, the owner and his brother will drive trucks for awhile to boost revenue. They are very pleased to be out from under their MCA loans and ready for the business growth that is already underway.
