Cash flow financing – a form of financing in which the loan is backed by a company’s current or expected cash flows. This differs from an asset-backed loan, where the collateral/security for the loan is based on the company’s assets. The schedules or repayments for cash-flow loans are based on the company’s projected future cash flows. Debt covenants on these loans are typically focused on adequate levels of EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization) growth and margins, as well as manageable and sustainable levels of interest expenses. This is also known as cash-flow loan.
Cash-flow financing is often used by companies seeking to fund their operations, or acquire another company or other major purchase. Companies are essentially borrowing from cash flows they expect to receive in the future by giving another company the rights to an agreed portion of their receivables. This allows companies to obtain financing earlier, rather than at some point in the future. Timely operational expenditures, such as meeting payroll requirements, inland revenue obligations, stock purchase would be some of the reasons for cash-flow financing.Here at Global Finance Brokers we can advice on solutions in order to assist and facilitate business cash flow finance.
