Typically, as a company grows so does its need for financing. Companies need to have ready capital to take advantage of opportunities, whether organic growth or by acquisition. Factoring provides that peace of mind and reliable financing.

Need: The client needed suitable financing to support its growth.
Solution: Within two weeks, Prestige funded the company’s current receivables with a $500,000 line and wired the funds to a new account opened at the bank that introduced Prestige to the client.
