Need: In order to repay its debt to the bank/FDIC and secure financing to resume normal business operations, the company needed a finance company that was sophisticated enough to negotiate with both the bank and the FDIC attorneys to close the deal.
Solution: After several months of bureaucratic negotiations, Prestige factored approximately $1 million in receivables, repaying the client’s debt and cleaning up its payables so that the company could return to normal operations.
