Raising Growth Capital
Bridge Capital Solutions was founded in 2006 as New York State’s only licensed commercial check-cashing company on Long Island. It provides a financial service to the Long Island small business community by accelerating access to cash.
Bridge Capital Solutions Inc. was started with the personal financial resources of the founders and grew rapidly. The owners wished to bring in outside capital to continue to grow at a fast rate. Investment bankers told them they must sell the company to raise growth capital. This made little sense to the owners who felt it could grow significantly with proper financial backing.
The Attract Capital Plan
We saw the Company as well suited for a cash flow lending methodology of a mezzanine lender. While the company lacked hard assets, it had great recurring cash flow. We helped the company articulate and communicate the strength of their cash flow and growth potential.
Our client has raised over $7 million of funding in two separate funding transactions. The Company was able to raise the growth capital they needed and has successfully executed their growth plan. As a result of the funding success:
- Revenue has more than tripled from the pre-closing level.
- Profits have increased 4-fold from the pre-closing level.
- The Company has the cash to invest in new areas. They are now developing an exciting new product that could transform the business.
Best of all, through bypassing a premature sale, the Founders still own the company and have created significant net worth!
