Looking For Business Financing To Prevent The Terminal Event of Business Failure ? These Solutions Just Might Helploans

OVERVIEW – Information on business finance solutions and strategies. Funding via loans or asset monetization is key to success in corporate survival

Business finance strategies require some serious investigation and consideration in the asset funding and loan needs of any company. The reality is that every company is in a different stage of growth or success, therefore requiring different solutions. Lack of, or improper solutions lead to what we’ve call that ‘ terminal event ‘… business failure. Let’s dig in.

While working capital needs often measure business success because they typically reflect sales growth and ‘paper profits ‘ the reality is that it always comes back to cash flow as the ultimate measure of success… and by the way.. survival.

While the optimal goal is to have some sort of ‘ cash reserve ‘, or at least access to that cash via a business line of credit those two goals are not always attainable. It’s important to note that almost always some simple cash flow ‘ forecasting’ can help identify future bulges in cash and financing needs.

Compounding the problem is the fact that many industries require different levels of capital expenditure and working capital investment. The winners in this category are ‘ service companies’ who require much less spending to attain sales revenues. This is as opposed to mfr’s who invest in equipt and inventory and have a longer cash cycle.

In some cases your firm might be investing in R&D which forces an even longer business cycle. When we meet clients facing R&D capital needs we encourage them to take advantage of Canada’s SR&ED program which allows to you recover a large portion of your research spend. By the way those refundable tax credits are financeable and allow you to aggressively accelerate that cash outflow back into your bank account!

When financing becomes a key consideration many owners don’t want to look to new equity, thereby ‘ diluting’ their ownership.

Companies who don’t focus on managing their receivables and credit will find themselves in those ‘ dire straits’ that can unfortunately lead to our ‘ terminal event ‘. If bank lines aren’t available then owners/financial mgrs should consider A/R financing or Asset based non bank lines of credit. These types of facilities allow you to draw against ongoing sales and receivables. They don’t work when your sales are in a death spiral or if you’re not focusing on good collection turnover.

Remember also that new cash coming into your firm will only comes from a handful of resources, namely collecting your sales receivables, borrowing, and efficient use of supplier credit.

The ‘ cash gap ‘ can be filled by debt , equity, or monetizing existing assets via sources of funding such as A/R finance, equipt leases and loans, sale leaseback of assets, working capital term loans, or exploring the possibility of unsecured cash flow loans.

If you’re focused on ‘avoiding ‘ our terminal event through the use of proper financing solutions and techniques seek out and speak to a trusted, credible and experienced Canadian business Financing Advisor with a track record of success who can assist you in ‘ up and running’ cash flow and business finance.
