WEBINAR DESCRIPTION 
The ability to obtain adequate financing is essential to successfully operating and growing a contracting business.  Owners and management must thoughtfully plan for long-term capital and cash flow needs, establish trusted banking and surety relationships and secure adequate lending capacities.  Without doing so, contractors may be hard-pressed to acquire the necessary equipment, much less have the cash and working capital required to support day-to-day operations.  

This webinar will explore several options contractors may consider for long-term equipment financing and working capital lines of credit, including the related benefits, risks and limitations.  We will discuss and illustrate how the company’s financial information, operating results and long-term forecasts are commonly evaluated by financing and surety underwriters.  Having this understanding will help the business owner, company management and their advisors put the company in a best possible position to secure the necessary borrowing capacities.  

This webinar is designed to help owners and management:       
  • Evaluate commonly available lending options for capital equipment financing and working capital needs of contractors 
  • Understand how their financial information and operations are evaluated by lenders and credit underwriters 
  • Build trusted relationships and effectively communicate with lenders and credit underwriters
