Express Trade Capital (“ETC”) is thrilled to announce the addition of a $3.5MM B2C – Ecommerce financing facility to a well-established and fast-growing cashmere apparel manufacturer.
The client produces sustainable cashmere apparel sourced from ethically farmed and well pampered Mongolian goats. Not content to be just another sheep in the herd, the client signed with Express over 6 years ago and obtained a multi-tier facility that included factoring, PO financing and both documentary and standby letters of credit. Equipped with the proper facilities, the client wisely spent their time and capital, growing over 10x since starting with ETC.
In addition to producing high end, sustainable and affordable cashmere products, the client also employed savvy marketing skills to create quirky comedic content which garnered millions of views and helped rocket their online sales to over $25MM in annual revenue.
As their B2C ecommerce business took off and exceeded their wholesale revenue, the client needed additional assistance to keep up with heavy, growing demand. They needed more capital but didn’t want to get fleeced by promises of quick cash at exorbitant rates. Naturally, they approached ETC based on the trust earned from shepherding their current facilities. Upon discussion, it became clear these cashmere merchants needed more than mere cash – they needed a program that could scale along with their sales.
Given the client’s solid longstanding history with the client and ETC’s deep knowledge of the client’s products and operations, ETC was able to quickly structure an e-commerce financing program to help them shear their sheep of expanding revenue.
This facility allows the client to meet and exceed their internal projections and includes an accordion feature to expand the facility further based upon reaching certain credit milestones.
This is just another example of how ETC can quickly deploy a vast suite of services to help clients grow and prosper. Is ETC the GOAT of finance? Maybe. Maybe not. But in this case, they certainly stepped up and led their flock to the promised land of greener pastures and great growth, ensuring their client’s capital needs shall not want.
Since 1993, ETC has been advising its clients on the following:
- How to structure transactions for maximum profitability.
- How to most efficiently move your goods from pickup to delivery to your customer.
