Financing US Subsidiaries
Foreign business, entities looking to enter the U.S. market may create a U.S. subsidiary to manage operations and hold title to U.S. assets. Prestige provides creative global solutions to U.S. subsidiaries to grow their business and improve liquidity resulting from the sale of accounts receivables.
Client: Midwestern U.S. manufacturer with over $1 billion in annual sales.
Situation: The subsidiary’s parent company embarked on a major capital expenditure program, resulting in restrictions on intercompany advances.
Need: Although strong financially, the client needed working capital flexibility without creating debt.
Solution: Prestige purchased their receivables without recourse through a $30 million factoring line, so the client could have access to immediate cash. As factoring is not a loan, the company assumed no debt on its balance sheet.
Client: U.S. Subsidiary of German carton manufacturer with $5 million in annual sales.
Situation: The ten-year-old subsidiary was historically funded by its foreign parent company. Due to global banking environment, the parent company made an abrupt decision to stop supporting the U.S. subsidiary. The subsidiary faced closure if it could not secure financing.
Need: The subsidiary needed immediate stand-alone financing to provide for its ongoing capital needs.
Solution: Within four days, Prestige purchased and funded $300,000 in receivables which prevented a disruption in operations and preserved jobs. Without this funding, the subsidiary would have closed.
Client: U.S. subsidiary light manufacturer of an insolvent foreign parent company.
Situation: The foreign parent company defaulted on its loan obligation, and even though the subsidiaries were not parties to the loan agreement, they found themselves without a lender while the matter was being resolved.
Need: The two U.S. subsidiaries needed stand-alone financing to fulfill a backlog of orders and provide ongoing working capital.
Solution: Prestige worked diligently to provide a combined line of $1.5 million for the entities to meet payroll and operating expenses.
