Equipment Investment Helps Fiber Optic Cable Contractor Grow Business

A fiber optic installation contractor needed to acquire multiple brands and types of equipment in a short time period to take advantage of new business contracts.

Situation

GROWTH OPPORTUNITY REQUIRES SIGNIFICANT EQUIPMENT INVESTMENT

In their sixth year in business, they were awarded a very large, long-term contract that required significant investment in equipment at different locations throughout the U.S. – trenchers, trailers, skid steers, vacuum excavators, and more. The equipment investment per location was over $1MM. The variety of equipment types required that they purchase multiple brands through multiple dealers, meaning their traditional dealer-leasing / point of sale method was not going to work.

They needed a financial partner who could:

  • Help them understand their options
  • Finance all the equipment without having to use multiple lenders
  • Reduce the number of monthly payments
  • Be flexible with contract terms
  • Understand the business enough to help them grow and capture new contracts
  • Quickly respond to new equipment needs

Solution

EQUIPMENT REFINANCE AND LOAN CONSOLIDATION ENABLE EQUIPMENT ACQUISITION

CCG created a financial package which refinanced their existing leases and added new equipment purchases, which provided terms to consolidate the number of payments to match the length of their contract work. This enabled them to acquire new equipment as needed, and, ensure the equipment would be paid off when a particular contract had expired. They have acquired nearly $5 million in equipment over the past four years, and their debt service and cash flow continue to be manageable letting them do what they do best.
