Specialty Textile Manufacturer
Revolving Credit Line
RE-FINANCING CREATES LIQUIDITY AND LOWERS COST OF CAPITAL
This specialty textile manufacturer was acquired by a financial sponsor in mid-2017 out of the portfolio of a distressed lending institution. Given the situation of the distressed lending institution, timing was of the essence. The sponsor utilized a bridge loan in order to complete the transaction before liquidation proceedings were initiated. After the transaction was completed, the sponsor began seeking refinancing options. After pursuing several alternatives, the sponsor chose Lighthouse due to our flexibility and responsiveness.
Lighthouse structured a line of credit against accounts receivable and inventory in conjunction with a term loan from a second lien lender that not only paid off the bridge loan but created significant liquidity and lowered the company’s overall cost of capital.
