$400,000 Equipment Loan Secured For Tenant Improvements

Huntington Coast Capital headquartered in Huntington Beach, CA announced today that it secured a $400,000 equipment loan to complete tenant improvements at an existing client’s business location. The loan was secured under an equipment loan structure through one of HCC’s established capital partners.

“Huntington Coast Capital was able to secure a loan that no other lenders were interested in” the company president said in a post closing interview. This particular equipment loan, while classified that, was more of a bridge loan secured by in-wall plumbing and fixtures for a cold storage tenant improvement build out.

From a collateral perspective it was very different than your typical equipment loan. In most equipment loan scenarios, the collateral is either rolling (trucks and trailers, etc) or bolted in to the ground (as in a manufacturing or other equipment intensive business). Adding to the creativity in this loan closing was the fact that all of the company’s other assets were tied up under a blanket lien by the senior lender. Lastly, the landlord waiver took a bit of negotiation as the “collateral” for the loan was largely in-wall or built in to the wall making the landlord waiver to enter the property and reclaim any collateral in the event of default, much more difficult.

In the end, Huntington Coast Capital had a happy client and another successful equipment loan closing. If your business could use some additional capital to grow, please call us 714-719-8966.

RECENT FEATURED TRANSACTION:
A Texas-based company contacted our Huntington Beach location regarding an equipment loan. The company was a supplier and installer of large water tanks for commercial and industrial use. The main applications of their product was for rain water harvesting, well water storage, fire water storage and municipal water storage. Their customers ranged from breweries to large farm co-ops to City Municipalities. Their business is growing and their brand is becoming well-known.

The challenge: The company was running in to a ceiling when it came to their growth potential. The supplier they worked with was located in Australia and had minimum shipment requirements and needed cash up front for the orders. The typical sales cycle (from ordering from supplier to delivering and being paid by the customer) could run as long as 4-6 months. This, coupled with net losses from operations as the company went through growing pains, made them unfit for bank financing.

After applying for and being turned down for an SBA loan, Huntington Coast Capital brought in some forward looking, entrepreneurial lending options. The lender ultimately chosen by our client provided for the cash to purchase the inventory by leveraging existing equipment and freeing up cash trapped in the assets of the company.

The result: A cash injection was possible by leveraging the company current equipment and inventory assets which resulted in being able to fulfill the increasing customer orders. Our non-institutional solution will bridge the company for 12 to 18 months and allow the company to make that jump to profitability. They will likely be ready for traditional financing within a two year time period.
