ABF Journal Borrowers’ Issue Is on Its Way to Subscribers


ABF Journal’s September edition, our Second Annual Borrowers’ Issue, is on its way to subscribers!

Following the same model as the inaugural edition in 2011, the Borrowers’ Issue focuses both on the lender and borrower. To start the issue off, Mark Wierman of Associated Commercial Finance, talks about asset-based lending heating up in the Midwest.

ABF Journal contributor Lisa Miller speaks with GE Capital’s Robert McCarrick regarding the GE/Ohio State Middle Market Indicator Survey, and CIT Trade Finance’s Jonathan Lucas discusses the launch of CIT’s Factoring University.

Michael E. Jacoby and Bradley Test of Phoenix Management Services reflect on the company’s Q2 survey, which saw significant improvement in nearly all lending survey metrics. Elsewhere, People’s United Business Capital’s Kathleen Z. Lepak also discussed improvements to our domestic economic fundamentals that suggest U.S. companies are positioned to take advantage of the economic recovery.

Gavin/Solmonese’s Ted Gavin talks about the great EBITDA Myth, and Crystal Financial’s Steven Migliero provides a look at bifurcated collateral loans.

In ABF Journal’s Profile of Success, editor Lisa Goetz speaks with Stuart Brister, president of Wells Fargo’s Trade Capital Finance Division, and John Marrinson, regional credit manager of the Purchase Order Finance Group, to discuss how the Wells Fargo-Wachovia merger and the global economy have affected the company’s international finance endeavors.

And that’s not all. As in every issue of ABF Journal, there are a variety of articles in the turnaround, factoring, bankruptcy and legal sections.
