Our new client provides international freight forwarding services. The company is experiencing exceptional growth, so its cash needs are outpacing its continued profitability.

“We worked hard to understand the business, the collateral, and the ownership and management team,” said Bill Elliott, President – Accounts Receivable Financing at First Business Specialty Finance, LLC, a subsidiary of First Business Bank. “As a result, we have been able to structure a facility that addresses the company’s cash needs.
