5 BDC Secured, Revolving, Asset Based (ABL), Lines of Credit Secured by a company’s collateral, primarily receivables and inventoryLoan revolves daily, increasing by each advance and decreasing via cash receiptsCash is controlled via a lockbox and collateral account at a bank (not BDC)Loans are formula driven: an example of advance rates might be:80% of eligible receivables, and35% of eligible inventory$500K to $3MM or larger with a participation
6 BDC Lines of Credit – Typical Candidates Manufacturers, Distributors, Wholesalers, some Service companies with:With temporary earnings issues or balance sheet leverageSolid management teamGood financial controls, with financials prepared by a reputable accounting firmNOT construction companies with progress billingsNOT companies with inventory financing needs greater than A/R financing
7 Benefits of a Revolving Line of Credit – for the borrower Ability to:Have cash immediately available for useFinance growth – can borrow on new sales based upon the formula advance rate.Borrow efficiently - only pay interest on daily outstanding loan balance.Take vendor discounts, thereby increasing profitability.Maintain relationship with their existing bank for treasury (cash) management.
8 Benefits of a Revolving Line of Credit – for the banker In some cases, we may participate a loan with the existing/prospective lender, allowing the lender to:stay in a relationship / gain a customerprovide cash management serviceslessen the bank’s exposureadd more oversight to their loan.
9 Advantages of a Revolving Line of Credit vs Advantages of a Revolving Line of Credit vs a Typical Bank Line of Credit (LOC)Revolves daily rather than through a monthly borrowing base (faster access to cash)The focus is geared to collateral quality and not financial ratios.Generally will accept a higher degree of leverage than a typical LOC.The additional monitoring of A/R can provide comfort when dealing with other issues.No annual “30 day pay-down” feature.Substantially less costly than a finance co. or factor.Interest rate = LIBOR (26bps) plus 6 – 7%
