Client: New Jersey-based third generation ready-mix concrete company with $8 million in annual sales.
Situation: The company’s bank was taken over by the FDIC which resulted in their loss of an ongoing funding source. Without a line, the 11-year-old company was unable to pay its vendors and had to scale back operations.
Need: In order to repay its debt to the bank/FDIC and secure financing to resume normal business operations, the company needed a finance company that was sophisticated enough to negotiate with both the bank and the FDIC attorneys to close the deal.
Solution: After several months of bureaucratic negotiations, Prestige factored approximately $1 million in receivables, repaying the client’s debt and cleaning up its payables so that the company could return to normal operations.
