Leasing - Have you ever tried to get your
bank to finance your business equipment
with zero down payment? Most banks would
not even consider this, yet we can offer
you 100% financing for just about any
type of business equipment. This allows
you to conserve your cash for other uses
and at the same time, may allow your business
to write off 100% of the lease payments.
Backed Loans - Over 90% of
businesses are considered "small
businesses" by the government's criteria.
If your business has less than 100 employees
and does less than $5 million in annual
sales, a loan through the government guaranteed
loan program may be your best option.
We specialize in helping business owners
navigate through the maze of government
and bank paperwork.
- Why wait 30 days for your clients to
pay invoices? With Accounts Receivables
Factoring you can receive up to 90% of
the money due your company in only 2-3
days. Our pool of investors specialize
in buying invoices from companies like
yours. This can be done regardless of
your credit and without the "Personal
Guarantee" often required by banks.
Real Estate Loans - If you
are considering the purchase or construction
of Commercial Real Estate, we can offer
you up to 90% financing and have access
to some of the most aggressive programs
in the industry. With loan terms up to
25 years you'll be surprised at how easy
owning Commercial Real Estate can be.
Order Finance - We can arrange
for financing of purchase orders.
Capital - There are over a
thousand venture capital firms in North
America who are seeking world class investee
companies. We have worked with a number
of these. Each one has different criteria
for investing. The most effective way
in which to attract venture capital financing
is to have a targeted approach and and,
ideally, an introduction from someone
whom the V.C. firm already knows.
Backed Loans and Assistance
- The Federal and Provincial/State Governments
all have a variety of programs designed
to stimulate economic activity in one
area or another. There are programs for
hiring new employees, for carrying out
research and development, for exporting
products, for borrowing money from commercial
banks. We fit the need of the particular
company with the best available government
program, keeping in mind the overall business
plan of the company.
Financing - Many companies
may find this to be a viable alternative
to private financing. The decision to
"go public" is one which is
made carefully and is a major transaction
for a company. While we are not underwriters,
we have assisted companies in going public,
both on the Canadian and U.S. stock exchanges.
There are significant benefits in having
experienced people looking after your
interests exclusively in selecting and
working with the other "going public"
Buyouts - The hostile takeovers
of the '80's are giving way to the (mostly)
friendlier buyouts of the new millenium.
There are numerous financial sources who
specialize in financing buyouts of solid
companies by leveraging the assets being
acquired. We can assist in preparing the
package, negotiating the deal and locating
the right financing.
Partnerships - This financing
technique may be appropriate for a distinct
opportunity or project. We have used L.P.'s
very successfully over the years and it
remains a very useful way in which to
finance a company's activities especially
for specific projects.
Alliances - It is sometimes
better to attack a particular market with
another player on your team. Teaming up
with another company who has complementary
skills or a stronger financial base is
many times better than trying to do it
all yourself. Large corporations like
to team up with smaller, more agile and
entrepreneurial ones to address specific
market niches. We can assist in finding
the right one for you.
Advantaged Financings - There
are still a number of tax advantaged ways
in which to finance your company. Typically
this removes some of the risk and makes
an investment in your firm much more attractive.
In many cases, it means the critical difference
between getting an investment or not.
We have structured and sold numerous tax
advantaged investments for client companies.
