eCapital funded a $3.5 million factoring facility for an esteemed book publishing company. This transaction reinforces eCapital's commitment to delivering competitive finance solutions and demonstrates the expertise of its dedicated team in facilitating crucial business transitions.

A family-owned publishing enterprise, dedicated to producing quality educational materials since its establishment in the late 1970s, faced significant challenges during a management buyout. Following the decision to sell the company to its management team, its senior bank partner withdrew its support due to the change of control. This sudden withdrawal jeopardized the buyout and the future operations of the company. The terms of the purchase agreement mandated a working capital line, and eCapital was referred by the banker to step in and assist.

Recognizing the urgency of the situation, eCapital structured a competitive, confidential factoring facility with an inventory sublimit to support the management buyout. The bespoke solution enabled the longstanding senior executive to assume control and ensure the continuity of the company’s operations. By addressing the unique financial requirements of the transition, eCapital played a pivotal role in facilitating the change of ownership from the founder to the management team.

Tom Siska, SVP, Commercial Finance, commented, “This transaction exemplifies the strength of our collaborative approach and deep industry understanding. Our ability to provide flexible and competitive financial support was essential in facilitating the management buyout and ensuring the company's continued success. We are proud to have delivered a timely and effective financial package during this change of ownership.”

This recent success highlights eCapital's dedication to fostering enduring partnerships and delivering impactful results, supporting businesses at pivotal moments of change in today's competitive market.
