Gunning for growth
Although high levels of demand for a growing company’s products and services sounds ideal, satisfying orders whilst keeping cash flowing – not to mention maintaining healthy relationships with customers – can be a difficult act to juggle.
When a £25 million turnover importer and wholesaler required a more supportive funding facility in order to expand and keep up with demand, their Finance Director contacted Hilton-Baird Financial Solutions for assistance.
With their existing funding facility proving restrictive and a single client accounting for such large proportion of their sales, they needed to find a new funder that would be comfortable financing high concentration levels, as well as stock. The nature of the funding package, sales approach and the longevity of the relationship were also important factors affecting the overall decision.
Using our skills and experience in arranging finance facilities for businesses with a high turnover, we were able to introduce the most appropriate funder and facility that could cater for our client’s requirements.
Asset based lending is effective and therefore popular amongst established business wishing to either fund expansion or meet day-to-day cash flow requirements. It offers businesses flexibility by enabling them to release cash tied up in a range of existing assets – not just invoices – and our client was impressed with the encompassing nature of the facility and the attributes of the funder we introduced.
The new facility will ultimately enable the business to substantially increase levels of working capital whilst satisfying orders, helping it to grow.
