Gibraltar Provides $8MM Facility to Sports Equipment Company


Gibraltar Business Capital provided a $8 million line of credit to a sports equipment company.

The company was referred to Gibraltar by a turnaround consultant. The client was an industry-leading retailer/e-tailer of new and preowned golf equipment, shoes, apparel and accessories. The company had been in business selling sports equipment to consumers through its multiple ecommerce sites.

Despite a good track record of sales, the company had run into temporary setbacks in business performance.
