THE CHALLENGES 

Highly Seasonal: Company was highly dependent on the holiday season.

Working Capital: Company needed additional working capital to fulfill purchase orders ahead of seasonal ramp-up.

Cash Flow Issues: Company paid 40% of product cost up-front and an additional 40% upon shipment from China. Long cash-out to cash-in cycle put a strain on their operations.
