KCP Advisory Secures New Capital for Convenience Store Chain

KCP Advisory Group (KCP), announced the successful debt restructuring and refinancing of a chain of convenience stores and gas stations. The refinancing provided working capital for the company to continue with its plans for further expansion.

The company experienced a large drop in top-line revenue when its fuel supplier decided take back several retail locations and manage these locations directly. To preserve cash-flow, new business segments were added to the remaining locations and corporate overhead was cut significantly. KCP provided support and analysis, which were essential to secure a new line of credit that is better suited to the long and short term needs of the company.

“The past few years have been challenging for this company,” comments KCP managing director, Chris Creutz. “Their business was always profitable, but contractual vendor obligations changed the bottom line. With new financing, they will have an excellent chance at continued and future success.”
