Mountain West Case Study
 

 

The Challenge

Cash Flow: Manufacturer required payment months before company received inventory, which put strain on company cash flows. 

Meeting Demand: Company was growing but they were unable to continue to self-finance due to their limited ability to build inventory.  

Competitive Space: Brand had proven track record abroad but recently broke into highly concentrated U.S bicycle market. Company was positioned to become a market leader. 

Not Bankable: Company had limited operating history domestically and was unable to secure financing from a traditional lender.
