Loeb Term Solutions Invests in SQN Latina to Provide Equipment Financing in Mexico

The Partnership is Focused on Providing Equipment Financing in Mexico with Fundings up to $4,000,000 per Deal 

Loeb Term Solutions announces its recent partnership in SQN Latina, a Mexico city-based industrial asset lender focused on small and medium enterprises. The partnership between the two companies is breaking barriers in the manufacturing, construction and transportation industries by its ability to offer equipment financing in Mexico. 

"We have received many requested from U.S. manufacturers that have facilities in Mexico that would like to leverage that equipment. Until now there has not been a seamlessly integrated way to do this in U.S. currency," stated John Hagist, CFO of Loeb. "We're thrilled with this new partnership and the opportunities that it will bring to our clients, both state-side and based in Mexico." 

Domestic companies wanting to leverage their assets in Mexico, but borrow and pay in U.S. dollars (USD), now have options to secure financing. The deals, ranging between $500,000 and $4,000,000 dollars (USD), are structured as sixty-month term leases with a small residual. 

SQN Latina is founded by Tanir Helayel and Eduardo Mendoza, veterans in asset-based lending with over 30 years in industrial financing. Currently the start-up has secured lending lines of over $75,000,000 USD. 

Since 2010, Loeb Term Solutions has provided funding on over $200 million dollars' worth of industrial machinery. The company's asset-based lending division offers specialty financing for the industrial marketplace with funding amounts ranging from $300,000 to $20,000,000.

Asset Based Lending in Volatile Industries

Testimonials From a Client at Every Step in the Finance Life Cycle:

During Due Diligence: "When a strategic acquisition opportunity presented itself, I needed to move fast with assets that typical lenders do not like to finance. To get the deal done, Loeb Term Solutions not only assisted in the syndication, but also assisted in the organization of the collateral and the cleanup of over 600 liens -- all above the other various hurdles normally encountered during an acquisition by a new company." 

After Closing: "Loeb Term Solutions was a real team player in this process and saw these issues through with their persistence, determination and their suggestions to take care of the matter at hand." 

After the Successful Liquidation of Assets: "Thank you for all your help through this. Not sure how this would have gone if you didn't have my back. I will not forget and hope we can do something in the future." 

Asset Based Lending in Volatile Industries

As with any asset-based financing, lending on the machinery requires a pre-planned exit strategy. Volatility in any industry could result in a liquidation of the company and its assets, but it's important for our finance partners and clients to understand that the assets we are lending on potentially have different values depending on the industry utilizing them.

About a year ago, Loeb Term Solutions financed a company in the scrap metals and recycling industry. Changes in the value of scrap metal caused the closure of the business. Recognizing that asset values may be different in other industries, LTS felt the current value of the assets protected its loan and was comfortable in the decision to hold off on the liquidation since we knew much of the equipment would be used in other "healthier" industries. 

The owner decided to work through an Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors (ABC), and with the cooperation of all parties, the Assignee was able to liquidate some of the assets under the LTS lien in an Orderly Manner that allowed those buyers to buy before the auction and to continue to service the clients of the Borrower. After several months of this type of liquidation, the remaining assets were offered for sale in Bulk and sold to an Auctioneer group that then ran an auction to sell the remaining individual items piece-by-piece. 

Because of Loeb's valuation expertise and industrial knowledge, all ended well for everyone. The Assignee was able to run an orderly closure of the business, LTS was able to be paid off in full for its Term Loan on the machinery, and the auctioneer made a profit for the work he did selling off the pieces. 

On the other end of the spectrum, we currently have a turnaround situation underway in another volatile market, the printing industry. This deal poses a much bigger risk as printing presses cannot be redeployed for use in other industries. In this case, the exit strategy hinges on working closely with the owner of the shutdown facility, and allowing him time to find competitors who may be interested in his presses before we take them to auction. 

As a lender, LTS recognizes the differences in these distressed industries and we structure our loans accordingly in order to protect both the borrower and the lender. Largely this is accomplished by adjusting the advance rate. For clients with machinery that has a stronger resale value to alternative industries, a larger advance rate can be funded. Whereas companies with very specific machinery to their industry, can only be advanced a smaller portion of their appraised value. Overall, the key to lending within distressed industries is having a solid exit strategy that fully recognizes the value of the machinery and whether or not it may be specific to the industry you're lending in.

LTS Funds Over $8.6 Million Dollars' Worth of Equipment

Yet Another Satisfied Customer... 

"Rob and I want to thank you and you team for the great job you did to get the closing funded. Without your steady and rational approach I doubt the financing would ever have closed. 

I particularly want to single out Loeb team member Angie for the outstanding contribution she made to keeping everything under control and moving forward. Your cool-headed and logical approach to the matters at hand was critical, but the professional back-up Angie provided was exceptional in my experience... 

Thanks again Jim for all the hard work you and your team put into getting the financing closed and we look forward to working with you again on the next one."
