Adams Business Credit Rebrands as Context Business Lending

Adams Business Credit, a national asset-based lender, will rebrand as Context Business Lending, bringing the firm in unison with the family of businesses and affiliates under Context Capital Partners, an alternative investment firm. The newly named Context Business Lending will continue to focus on providing flexible working capital solutions for businesses that do not qualify for traditional bank financing.

Context Business Lending typically provides loans of up to $15 million for lower middle-market businesses that may be experiencing some type of challenge, which may include: rapid growth; seasonal fluctuations; supply chain and vendor pressure; operating losses/negative net worth; turnaround and restructuring; merger or acquisition and debtor-in-possession financing. The firm is sector agnostic and works with businesses in the manufacturing, distribution, wholesaling and service sectors.

"Even as traditional financial institutions tighten their underwriting criteria and pull back from the middle market, we believe there is a wide funding gap in the market for flexible financial sources," said John Giangiulio, co-founder and Managing Director of Context Business Lending. "Context Business Lending is a true asset-based lender that does not focus on financial covenants which often restrict a business from seizing opportunities for growth."

"We regularly speak with business owners who struggle with how difficult it is to get funding," said William Peruzzi, co-founder and Managing Director of Context Business Lending. "We pride ourselves on our ability to find flexible capital solutions that meet the needs of these owners, whether they're trying to make it through a rough patch or launch the next growth phase."

"We are very excited to realign the Adams brand with the Context family of businesses, which are designed to provide alternative managers with the financial and operational resources needed to succeed," said Ron Biscardi, Chief Executive Officer of Context Capital Partners. "The team's expertise in asset-based lending complements our full suite of alternative-focused funds and companies, which include Context Asset Management and Context Summits."
