Rosenthal Completes $13MM in Transactions for Clients Across Multiple Industries

Rosenthal & Rosenthal completed several transactions, including an asset based lending deal and three deals for Rosenthal’s newest division, Pipeline, serving e-commerce and direct-to-consumer businesses. The funding and financing facilities will help to address clients’ working capital needs and support various growth opportunities.
A major mitigation and restoration company serving communities up and down the East Coast was referred to Rosenthal by Rick Szekelyi, Managing Director of Phoenix Management Services, a third-party consultant. Rosenthal EVP and National Underwriting Manager for ABL Rob Martucci, together with his late Rosenthal colleague, Al Foster, worked closely with the ownership and management teams to get comfortable with the deal by looking at percentage of completion and progress billings. Rosenthal was able to develop a comprehensive borrowing base that worked for both parties, providing a $5 million revolving line of credit against the company’s accounts receivables.
“This non-traditional ABL structure is a perfect example of how clients can benefit from Rosenthal’s creativity and flexibility to get the working capital they need to run and grow their businesses,” said Martucci.
An importer of high-performance workwear operating primarily in the direct-to-consumer space was introduced to Rosenthal by one of the brand’s private equity investors. Although an early stage seed investor had guaranteed the company a line of credit from a small local bank, the client soon realized the funding would not be sufficient to support the business moving forward. Because Rosenthal had successfully financed other portfolio companies for the private equity firm in the past, Pipeline was brought in to provide $3 million in funding.
When a booming men’s personal care products brand expanded into wholesale to supplement their direct-to-consumer business, the company began looking for a lender to grow with them. After learning that their existing lender was not able to offer the funding they needed, one of the company’s venture capital investors introduced them to Rosenthal’s direct-to-consumer division. Pipeline was able to provide the client more flexibility than their existing lender and provided $2.5 million in funding to support future growth.
A fast-growing sporting goods business selling sleek, modern products via direct-to-consumer channels, was seeking an alternative to the revenue-based financing arrangement already in place. Their existing financing was costly and ineffective for their rapidly changing business and did not have the capability to support the company’s recently launched wholesale businesses that was supplementing its direct-to-consumer channels. One of the brand’s venture capital investors introduced the management team to Rosenthal to explore financing solutions through Pipeline. Rosenthal ultimately offered a more flexible solution for the client, providing $2.5 million in funding.
“These three Pipeline transactions perfectly represent our specialized and customized offerings for fast-growing direct-to-consumer brands as well as Rosenthal’s expertise providing the liquidity and incremental working capital companies need to scale and grow their businesses,” said Andrew Barone, Rosenthal SVP and Director of Sales for Pipeline.
