SharpShooter 20/20 Funds – Case Studies: The Construction Industry
If you work in the construction industry, you know that the general contracting business is very different from traditional brick-and-mortar businesses. Most jobs pay out upon completion of the work, whether in terms of milestones during the process or in full at the very end of the job.
In the meantime, however, the contractor is usually forced to pay for expenses such as materials, insurance, equipment and payroll costs out of their own pocket. Cash flow is therefore king; in the world of construction, it’s often not a question of whether a business needs funding, but where and when they’re able to get it.
Many traditional Lending institutions will not Lend to businesses operating in the construction industry, citing any number of reasons:
- Inconsistent revenues resulting from a cyclical business
- Lack of a physical brick-and-mortar location
- A lack of collateral to put up against a funding
- Contractors are often bonded, which means the banks don’t have first claim to assets should the business fail
- Susceptible to market and economic downturns
- And more
The extremely conservative Lending practices of most major banks leaves a gap in the market, and that gap is filled by alternative Lending institutions. Alternative funders aren’t bound by the same rules and restrictions as big banks, so they’re able to offer highly customized funding solutions that prioritize getting money into your account so you can keep your business going.
Case Study – Decorate Too Construction
Decorate Too Construction is a Canadian SME construction company that’s been in business for just over 3 years. Recently, an exciting business opportunity presented itself to the company. A major prospective client had just put out a new project for RFP, and Gene and Nadine, the owners of Decorate Too Construction, wanted to bid on it.
The challenge with this was that the nature of the job would require Nadine & Gene to pay for substantial material and equipment costs upfront, with payment only coming after certain key milestones were hit. Without external funding, there was just no way the company could take on this job.
That’s where Sharpshooter Funding comes in. Nadine turned to Sharpshooter Funding, whose friendly, knowledgeable staff took the time to understand their unique situation and needs. Within 48 hours, Nadine & Gene were approved for $29,000 in Canadian Small Business Funding, which the Canadian Corporation would repay with total cost of working capital & purchased receivables over a period of twelve months. The funding provided by SharpShooter gave Gene and Nadine the cash flow their Canadian business needed to cover upfront costs associated with the project. They were able to make ends meet until their business hit the first payout milestone of the project, and it was all thanks to Sharpshooter Funding!
Case Study – Carpets on Navan
Carpets on Navan is a Canadian SMB with big ambitions. Its owner, Sandi & Victor aspired to take on larger jobs in order to expand the company’s client base and grow the business, which had been in operation for nearly ten years. The trouble was that the company needed new equipment in order to be able to handle most of the larger projects that were available in their area of operation. After careful consideration, the company decided that financing was the way to go.
Vic approached his primary bank for a funding but was told that, due to the unpredictable nature of his business and inconsistent cash flow, an approval was unlikely. Furthermore, even if the bank could approve him, the process could take anywhere from 1-3 months to complete, which was time he didn’t have. The busy season for construction was about to hit with full force, and he wanted to be ready. So after some research, he contacted SharpShooter Funding to find out about his other options.
Working with Sharpshooter Funding, Victor & Sandi were able to secure Canadian small business funding within 36 hours to cover the costs of their equipment financing. They were able to pay one fixed price each week for small business funding that covered both the hard cost of the equipment financing and the soft costs associated with training and shipping the equipment.
With its newly-financed equipment, Carpets on Navan was ready to start winning jobs that were previously out of the small company’s reach.
