What Is Machinery & Equipment Asset Based Financing?

What Is Machinery & Equipment Asset Based Financing?

Machinery and equipment asset based financing (or asset based lending) is a specific subset of the asset-based lending (ABL) world. Asset based lending can be an attractive financing alternative for companies that don’t qualify for a traditional bank loan or line of credit. To understand why, you need to understand the main differences between traditional bank loans and asset based loans. Banks lend money based on cash flow, looking primarily at a business’ income statement to determine if it can generate sufficient cash flow in the future to service the debt. In contrast, asset-based lenders look at a business’ balance sheet and assets - primarily, its accounts receivable, inventory, machinery, and real estate. They lend money based on the liquidity of the inventory and quality of the receivables, or the market value of the machinery and equipment and real estate. If your business has high financial leverage, but marginal cash flows, this type of loan can help generate liquidity.
