“We were very impressed with the professionalism of the NewStar team and their commitment to our deal. Integrity was a very important quality we wanted in our lender. They ‘closed what they proposed’ and exhibited integrity throughout the process,” stated Maury Bell, Chinada’s co-CEO.

“We are pleased to support Chinada’s financing needs and continue to expand our cross-border financing capabilities in Canada,” added Milton Iskra, national marketing manager for NewStar Business Credit.
