The purpose of this multifaceted SBA 504 Loan is to assist two affiliated companies with two separate projects. As a result of both requests, 20 full-time jobs will be created in the next two years. Utilizing the SBA 504 Loan program, in partnership with a local bank, the company found the ideal financing solution to meet their growing needs.

LENDER TESTIMONY

“Settlers bank appreciates its partnership with BLP. BLP’s focus on service and flexibility has been valuable in providing our client the funds they need for equipment critical to their growth and improvements to their plant. The opportunity to establish a long term fixed interest rate at current rates is tremendous and makes this transaction a big win for all parties.”

WHAT WAS UNIQUE ABOUT THIS LOAN?

The equipment was financed for a longer term than usual through documented ‘life of equipment’ as part of the application, further helping with cash flow for this growing business.

The source of equity for the building loan was ‘equity in the building’ (important note – only the equipment loan relied on cash).

Both loans will follow the structure outlined below:
