Is Asset Based Lending A Good Fit?

Companies considering any of these financing options should generally be profitable, with sufficient cash flow to cover debt service. In the case of turnarounds, these companies should project a return to profitability that can be documented through due diligence.


MB Business Capital supports companies from a wide range of industries as they achieve their goals – from manufacturers to distributors, selected service companies, and regional or national store-based retail chains. These companies typically have sales from $25 million to $500 million.
