United Capital Source helped secure one merchant cash advance totaling $9 million for a west coast construction company. The 32-year-old company will use the funds for a government contract it was awarded for the renovation of two city schools.
After receiving the award for the construction contract, the company came to UCS looking for a subordinated line to its current lender. UCS, an online marketplace, worked quickly with the company’s lender and the funder’s legal teams on the language needed in the subordination agreement. The total time to fund the advance was four and a half days.
UCS helped to structure the exact deal required within the timeframe necessary so the company could take advantage of the opportunity they had despite this being unconventional funding. The construction company received an immediate cash advance of $6 million, with another $3 million becoming available in twenty days when the second part of their project starts. The merchant cash advance structure is an estimated 12-month deal that includes aggressive prepayment options from three to six months.
UCS Jared Weitz said of the deal: “This is another example of how our marketplace works. We have partnered with best-in-class lenders and funders who can operate quickly and efficiently across multiple products offering the best rates and terms available.”
The structure of the loan is intended to serve as bridge financing, and that’s exactly how the construction company will use it. UCS VP of Sales Danielle Rivelli handled the deal from start to finish. Weitz said: “Danielle handled most of the deal, and she worked for 4 days straight assisting the legal teams and working back and forth between all parties getting the deal to the finish line in time for the clients.”
Danielle’s dedicated service and unique financing structure highlighted UCS’s ability to find business financing options that work for their clients. The construction company acquired the funds to take advantage of the government contract opportunity.
