How long does it take to get my deal funded?
We can fund rather quickly if all documentation has been executed, signed and received. Once a Notice and Acknowledgment of Acceptance has been signed we typically will fund within 3 days. In special circumstances we can fund in less than three days.
Will you finance a startup company that has been in business less than 6 months?
Yes. We will fund startups if the company has some proven customer traction. In most cases, a personal guarantee will need to be signed but it is not always necessary. It primarily will depend on the type of assets you want to lease. Another way we will fund is by taking direct assignment of a contract with an established company.
What is the interest rate you charge?
We are not a bank. We are a leasing company that purchases the equipment you select. Once you have picked out the equipment you want we will pay the vendor in your behalf and take ownership of the equipment and charge you a rental fee or lease payment on a monthly, semi-annual or yearly rate. The actual APR or running rate implicit in the lease is usually negative if we invest our equity into the equipment.
Will you finance non-technology equipment?
Yes, we will finance furniture and non-technology equipment for qualified lessees. Generally we only finance rated credits that have an S&P or Moody's rating of at least BB or higher.
I would like to own the equipment at the end of the lease, is that possible?
Yes, at the end of the lease you have three options. 1) Return the equipment, 2) Extend the lease and; 3) Purchase the equipment for the Fair Market Value. Put Option Leases are also available.
