Bibby Financial Services Funds $8.5 Million Facility for Florida-Based Apparel Company

Major Sportswear Supplier's Seasonality and Growth Creates Largest BFS Deal of 2014

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Nov 25, 2014) - Bibby Financial Services announced today it has funded an $8.5 million accounts receivable and inventory finance facility for a Miami-based apparel company.

The 30-year-old business is a major designer and manufacturer of licensed sportswear for big box U.S. retailers and Fortune 500 companies. The firm's inventory is a mix of finished goods as well as basic items ready for customization.

Because of the cyclical nature of the apparel industry, the company experienced cash flow gaps during times of low demand. In order to pay suppliers and take on new orders, it pursued a new form of financing. Bibby Financial Services worked with the business to better understand its needs and created a tailored solution.

"As with any apparel business, seasonality is a major factor in cash liquidity," said Graham Plater, Managing Director, Bibby Financial Services South. "To create more working capital, we offered two products, inventory and accounts receivables financing, to help them smooth out the seasonality of the business and prepare for future growth."
