Although the company had a solid reputation, its limited cash flow and low margins didn’t attract traditional lenders. However, factoring companies found the company highly appealing because of its clients’ reputation.


The company was able to leverage its large outstanding invoices with a financing company. The company took possession of the invoice and immediately provided 75% of the invoice amount. When the client paid the invoice, the company would receive the rest of the invoice amount, minus a modest fee.

The company’s sudden influx of cash enabled them to buy extra materials and hire more employees to adequately staff their production equipment. The increased workforce resulted in fewer overtime hours, leading to cost savings even after factoring in the fee.

Thanks to the additional cash, the toy company completed their holiday toy production on time and under budget. Their on-time delivery and quality products enabled the company to promptly secure contracts for the upcoming holiday season. Securing the contracts a year in advance allowed the company to start sourcing materials early in the year and build inventory. Consequently, this helped them avoid any crunch during the next holiday season
