First Capital Provides A/R Purchase Facility to Chemical Manufacturer

First Capital announced it provided a $10 million accounts receivable purchase facility to the U.S. subsidiary of a global manufacturer of specialty chemicals. The facility is in the form of a non-notification factoring agreement and is collateralized by a dedicated pool of the client’s accounts receivable.

First Capital was referred to the company by a European-based finance company because of First Capital’s ability to quickly develop a structure for the client’s U.S.-based accounts receivable that complimented their European-based facility. The facility provided the client with liquidity to fund strategic initiatives. The company is owned by a private equity group and was prompted to find suitable funding.

This is the third “true sale” transaction completed by First Capital in the last two years. First Capital was chosen as the lender due to its ability to provide the latest facility on account of creative structure and proven capability to meet the closing deadlines required by the client.
