Date Funded: 12/20/11
Facility Amount: $750,000 plus an inventory based term loan and an overadvance facility.
The Company: This Wisconsin company assembles and sells pedicure spa chairs to various customers, including large beauty product distributors as well as boutique salons. Their parent company has been looking to sell this portion of their business.
The Issue: An existing Allied client found an opportunity with this Wisconsin company as it would allow them to expand their market share and enter into a new niche product line. The sale of the company included a foreclosure on the existing assets of the company and an asset purchase. To complete the sale, additional funds were needed over and above a factoring facility based on accounts receivable. Moreover, the transaction had a quick closing deadline, as the prior potential buyer was unable to consummate the sale. The deadline for closing was within two weeks of Allied receiving the initial package.
The Solution: Allied’s existing client, having worked with Joel Flig at Allied when they came on board, reached out to Joel for assistance and referred this company to him. Allied was able to provide a factoring facility and help bridge the shortfall in the purchase price by providing a short term note component based on inventory and an overadvance facility. The entire transaction was closed within just ten business days.
The Win: This “Funding by Allied” provided the financing necessary to complete this acquisition which will potentially allow the company and Allied’s existing client to enter into the beauty products packaging markets with national distributor channels and grow their respective businesses.
