Bibby Financial Services Funds $8.5MM Facility for Apparel Company

Bibby Financial Services announced it has funded an $8.5 million accounts receivable and inventory finance facility for a Miami-based apparel company. The 30-year-old business is a major designer and manufacturer of licensed sportswear for big box U.S. retailers and Fortune 500 companies. The firm’s inventory is a mix of finished goods as well as basic items ready for customization.

Because of the cyclical nature of the apparel industry, the company was experiencing cash flow gaps during times of low demand. In order to pay suppliers and take on new orders, it pursued a new form of financing. Bibby Financial Services worked with the business to better understand its needs and created a tailored solution.

“As with any apparel business, seasonality is a major factor in cash liquidity,” said Graham Plater, Managing Director, Bibby Financial Services South. “To create more working capital, we offered two products, inventory and accounts receivables financing, to help them smooth out the seasonality of the business and prepare for future growth.”

Bibby Financial Services, a worldwide market leader in business cash flow solutions, bridges the access to cash gap between alternative lenders and traditional banks.  It operates offices in ten North American cities and 15 countries. Its product portfolio, which features factoring and asset-based lending solutions, serves emerging and established companies.  An approved lender for the Export-Import Bank's working capital guaranty program, Bibby USA and Bibby Canada are subsidiaries of its 207-year-old privately held U.K.-based parent.
