Supply Chain Financing

Bookmark and Share

supply chain financing If you are a small business owner who supplies goods or services to large customers, you may be able to obtain needed cash flow through supply chain financing.

Supply chain financing or reverse factoring is typically a three-way relationship among a supplier, a large customer, and a factoring firm. The customer in effect pre-approves invoices from a given supplier and commits to paying the invoices. Because of the customer’s higher credit rating, the factor is willing to conduct the transaction at a lower fee to the supplier. The factor pays the supplier based on the customer’s credit and will then collect on the invoice from the customer.

In this relationship, the supplier gains by obtaining immediate cash flow for working capital purposes while paying a lower factoring fee. Further, if the supplier has a particularly weak credit history or poor current and projected financials, it benefits through reverse factoring by gaining access to credit that it might not otherwise be able to obtain.

Debtor-in-Possession Financing Can Help Turn a Company Around Following Bankruptcy

Bookmark and Share

debtor in possession dip financing

For many distressed companies, there is hope for new financing. If they file for bankruptcy protection, they may be able to take advantage of debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing to help them reverse course and return to profitability.

It is typically available to companies where lenders believe the company has a credible chance and a viable plan to turn itself around from bankruptcy. The term “Debtor-in-Possession” refers to the fact that the current management and board of directors remain “in possession” of the company following its bankruptcy filing. Many small business owners are not aware that they can obtain financing to turn their company around after they have declared bankruptcy.

Many lenders see DIP financing as an attractive lending opportunity because of the special treatment of DIP loans under U.S. bankruptcy law. Under the law, DIP creditors must be repaid before other creditors. In fact, many lenders will commit to a DIP loan while they would not make a loan commitment to the same company in the absence of a bankruptcy filing.

DIP Financing Using Accounts Receivable Factoring

Companies can also use factoring as a financing tool in DIP financing – a possibility that many small business owners do not realize. In fact, accounts receivable financing can be one of the most flexible ways to obtain financing during the bankruptcy process. Factoring can be a win-win for both the borrowing company and the factoring firm. The borrower obtains needed financing that is not based on its own credit status, and the factoring firm achieves priority status under the Bankruptcy Code.

Paragon Helps Oil/Gas Industry Suppliers Stay Afloat

Bookmark and Share

oil-gas-ar-financingFrom California to Texas to Alaska, crude oil prices are down, rig counts are down, drilling permits are down and so is employment.   At the same time, banks are tightening lending terms along with credit lines for oil, gas and energy suppliers.   Financing is becoming harder to come by, but these same companies must have working capital to get through times of cheaper gas prices.   Oil prices are cyclical and on the way down which will eventually lead to more demand.  High energy prices lead to demand falling while low prices lead to higher demand. And currently lower prices leading to higher demand is exactly what’s taking place now.

“Over the last six months, 53% of vehicles purchased in the U.S. were for light trucks of sports utility vehicles, which …use more gas than cars….That was the highest share in a decade from 51% last June, when oil prices peaked for the year….The longer prices stay low, the more you’re going to get a response of people purchasing less fuel efficient vehicle….It won’t be just the U.S. doing it,” said Jason Schenker, President of Prestige Economics.

Invoice factoring is perfect for oil/gas suppliers to weather the storm.   When banks are no longer lending factoring companies step in.  They help companies go beyond banks limited credit lines and inject their company with working capital fast and efficiently.

Paragon Financial has been providing receivable financing, purchase order financing with credit protection and AR management to oil, gas and energy suppliers for over 20 years. We work closely with you to provide a working capital solution that fits your companies needs. Give us a call at 888-400-5931 today, fill-out the form to the right or chat with us.
