Roofing and Restoration Services
Alliance has a $2MM business that makes money in chaos. They clean up after storms. They wanted a credit line for growth after 5 years of banking at a major bank. It took only 5 minutes for that bank to deny their request for a $100K line because one of the owners credit wasn’t perfect. Concept Equity Group recast their forecasts and financials and found two community banks that offered a line of credit. They accepted a line of credit for up to $500K with one of the community banks.
