Manufacturers And ABL: Growth Without Loans

June 8, 2017 by CNH Finance, LP in category “Financing”

Manufacturers who are trying to position themselves for growth require a good source of working capital. Large and unexpected orders can place a strain on finances and require a shift in resources which can threaten to turn operations upside down. Lately, manufacturers have been pushing traditional bank loans to the sidelines in favor of ABL.

What Is ABL?

ABL, or asset based lending, is a revolving line of credit structured around the value of fixed assets owned by a manufacturing company. Because manufacturers own equipment, inventory, receivables, vehicles, and sometimes their own facilities, the amount of financing available through ABL is typically higher than other industries. An in-depth analysis is performed to get manufacturing businesses the top value for their fixed assets, taking into account many items which are overlooked by traditional lending institutions. Keep in mind that only assets which are owned by manufacturing companies can be used for asset based lending. Items such as leased equipment or facilities do nto qualify for this type of financing.

Why Manufacturers Use ABL Instead Of Loans

Loans create debt, and offer a finite amount of financing. The burn rate for manufacturers when we look at purchasing materials, equipment maintenance, payroll, distribution, and other factors, is also quite high compared to other industries. The funding from bank loans can be used very quickly, leaving debt which can take years to repay. ABL is a debt-free solution. The revolving business line of credit created through asset based lending means the source of working capital can be replenished after it is used. ABL gives manufacturers a source of long-term capital.

Growth Capital Without Debt

Asset based lending stands apart from traditional funding solutions because ABL grows with manufacturing companies. As manufacturing companies see an increase in sales, purchase new equipment, move into large facilities, or make other improvements, the amount of financing available through ABL also grows. Asset based lending provides a working capital solution that promotes growth and success, instead of weighing down businesses with debt, hidden fees, and arbitrary terms.
