How to Secure the Financing Your Business Needs to Grow

With many business owners anticipating volatility, discover the challenges and solutions to securing the expansive financing your business needs to implement its growth plans.

Business Owners Anticipate Growth

CEOs are feeling increasingly optimistic about the outlook of their businesses this year. According to a recent survey by Pepperdine University, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) expect to increase their annual revenue this year by an average of 9.7%. Reflecting this, 74% of businesses with an annual revenue of $5 million to $100 million reported that the main purpose for raising expected financing is growth or expansion, including acquisition.

Challenges in Sourcing Growth Capital for Your Business

Because of capital markets volatility and regulatory constraints placed on banks, as well as the fragmented nature of the commercial finance sector, securing sufficient capital to support growth remains a challenge for many SMBs. Even the commercial finance sector has been facing constraints on lending because bank leveraged lines have been reduced and underwriting criteria have become more stringent for their lines of credit. As a result, nearly two-thirds of SMBs reportedthat it is currently difficult to raise new external financing.

Many loan applicants seeking additional working capital or growth capital are thriving enterprises that for one reason or other fall outside the standard parameters for traditional bank finance, and now even commercial finance. Often, they approach the wrong type of lender or fail to present their application in the best way from a lender’s perspective.
