Anatomy of a Successful Funding

A top Florida-based law firm was in the midst of a major expansion and needed capital.

American Credit ® partnered with our client to transition away from  traditional bank financing to a more strategic longer-term option. It  would  provide more capital with exceptional pricing.

Challenges:  Due to high leverage and  low debt-service cover ratio, traditional conventional financing was not viable. In addition, we advised the client to avoid any expensive short-term financing options.

Although these advance type loans would enable the client to secure the needed capital, it would be to the detriment of their bigger strategic picture.

Solution: The client and his CFO agreed they wanted to explore long term , well-priced capital solutions. After reviewing their financials and expansion plan that included equipment, we focused on SBA 7a loans.

SBA 7a loan approval would be more lenient with their debt ratio, eliminate some leverage, and provide the additional  growth capital needed for 2024.

Result:  $ 500,000 SBA 7a loan approval that allowed the client to start 2024 the right way and implement their new strategic vision.
