Improve Seasonal Off-Cycles with Asset-based Lending

How Asset-Based Lending Can Improve Cash Flow During Seasonal Off-Cycles

Asset-based lending works well for all sorts of companies that are growing quickly, but if you own a business that experiences seasonal fluctuations, this loan option can be especially beneficial. An asset-based loan provides the funds needed during those off-cycles when cash flow may be reduced. And, this type of loan not only improves your cash flow but can help accelerate your trade cycles.

Seasonal Businesses Can be Profitable all Year Long

Let’s take a company that specializes in holiday inventory as an example. This company has a big presence and rings up huge sales during the winter holiday season, but experiences seasonal off-cycles after the holidays that will last until the following autumn.

If this holiday-themed company were to apply for an asset-based loan, they would receive working capital that they could use to continue their business growth during their off-cycle. This capital might be used for entering new markets, paying suppliers, or moving forward with new ventures. This holiday-themed company would not be able to conduct these activities with a low cash flow during the off-season. Asset-based lending can therefore give this company the funds needed to move forward during the off-season.

Even Out Cash Flow Fluctuations

Asset-based lending helps all kind of businesses and stores operate all year-round – whether they are closed for the off-season, or if they are expected to experience the unpredictability of highs and lows. The holiday-themed company used in the example above is one of many types of businesses that experience cash flow fluctuations.
