Does your manufacturing business need access to capital that a traditional bank cannot provide?

Is raising equity-sourced capital either unattractive or cost prohibitive?

For many manufacturers, Accounts-Receivable Factoring and Asset-Based Lending may have negative connotations. However, both have the potential to be high-value tools for accessing capital needed for either growth or liquidity. Join CAMPS for a lively, engaging, and practical roundtable presentation that will include the following:

  • Update on the General Conditions of Commercial Lending
  • Why Traditional Banks are Limited in How they Can Help Manufacturers
  • The Basics of Alternative Financing from Non-Regulated Institutions
  • Understanding the True Costs of Alternative Financing
  • How Alternative Financing Can Be Used as a Growth Tool
  • Numerous Manufacturing-related Lending Examples
