Financing Working Capital
Working capital loans are a very important reason community banks exist. Large banks like to deal with large customers on these types of loans. However, just because a business is small does not mean that there is not a legitimate need to finance working capital. First Bank of the Palm Beaches can help your business convert receivables to cash in order to keep the engine turning in your business.
Traditional Working Capital Loans
Figure 1 shows a detailed view of the traditional operating cycle in a company that produces goods and holds inventory. Materials are ordered and paid for, turned into inventory, sold on credit and finally paid for. Obviously cash is used in this process before it is collected which fundamentally creates a need to finance the manufacturing cycle.
At First Bank you will get the wisdom of our experience to guide you in this process while also knowing that you are speaking with our decision makers. We will take the time to understand your business and help you to understand where we fit in. The numbers are important, but having a trusted relationship is more important so give First Bank a chance to earn that trust.
Seasonal Working Capital Loans
South Florida’s unique economy creates the need for various seasonal lines of credit. Many of our well established businesses in this area experience drastic slowdowns during the summer months and often need to finance core operational costs while revenues decrease. First Bank can provide financing during the slow off season months with a seasonal line of credit so that your business can properly manage this expected event.
A local bank with a solid understanding of our local economy is important to the seasonal working capital loan process. Make sure your bank’s decision makers are a part of that local economy.
