Asset-based lending is lending that is secured by a company’s collateral. Things like real estate, equipment, inventory, and accounts receivable are all used as collateral for loans. The lender will take a first priority security interest in the financed assets. It is just one of many ways that a company can secure working capital and term loans. These loans are secured by machinery, equipment, or any other assets the business owns, as well as real estate. Funds can advance based on a percentage of the accounts receivable.


An asset-based loan is usually comprised of a revolving credit line that doesn’t have the common kind of structured repayment plan, and is done an interest-only basis. Funds can be advanced as a percentage of accounts receivable or inventory, usually between 60-85%. There are higher advance rates based upon seasonal fluctuations or appraisal of other kinds of business assets, however; although, not all banks and financial institutions have such flexible lending terms. It is worthwhile pursuing a bank, or department thereof, that specializes in the kind of business you run. You may be able to get a more favorable deal, and you will certainly be working with someone who understands your industry.

BUYOUTS: A buyout is the purchase of a controlling percentage of company stock. With a leveraged buyout, the company who is doing the acquiring uses the least amount of equity possible to buy the other company. The other company’s assets function as collateral for the debt, and its cash flow is then used to retire the debt that is accrued by the purchaser to buy the company.
