A fast-growing events company had enjoyed phenomenal success over the past 18 months, since inception, experiencing an incredible increase in turnover from brand-new start-up, to over £2m annually. The nature of the events industry, meant that they were experiencing problems with their working capital, stemming from cash flow gaps as a result of long payment terms and heavily loaded up-front costs.
After reaching out to the bank they were surprised, considering the evidence of their success, that they were not offered a suitable finance solution. They needed a fast, flexible solution to smooth their cash flow and allow them to continue their growth, unhindered, by reinvesting in their business.
The company, which specialises in ticketing and club nights, was finding their cash flow under extra pressure, simply because of its rapid growth. Nucleus introducers Now Business Finance and their team were tasked with finding a solution.
The Now Business Finance team, who had worked with Nucleus on several occasions knew how to get the business funding that fitted their client’s specific needs and, much more quickly.
The team at Nucleus saw the business was under pressure but that with a cash injection, could truly thrive. Our team of dedicated in house experts, are committed to understanding SMEs and listened to the story before delivering a solution. Nucleus quickly assessed the property loan applications and made a principle offer for a secured loan. Nucleus are always glad to help a growing business and in this case the bespoke structured loan we provided relieved the growing pains of the business and allowed them to focus on delivering events and growing the business year-on-year.
Unfortunately, not every lender really understands how SMEs work and the challenges they face, but the Nucleus team were fantastic to work with and we completed a transaction for the client in record time.
