Oilfield Hauling Contractor Refinances Equipment to Pay Off Tax Lien

The company was in a workout situation with their bank and needed to restructure debt to pay off some existing creditors, including the IRS…and they only had 60 days in which to do it.

Situation

Oilfield Hauler Struggles to Secure Lending After the IRS Imposes Tax Lien on Their Business

An enterprising CCG salesperson stopped into the company’s new location, having seen trucks in their yard. He inquired as to their new equipment needs and discovered that they weren’t in the market for new trucks but were in workout status with their bank.

Understanding that cash flow and working capital can be key components to a successful workout, he informed the controller that in addition to being able to assist in refinancing existing equipment loans, CCG along with its sister company, Commercial Funding Inc. (CFI), an accounts receivable finance company, could provide a complete one stop solution to their dilemma.

The company accepted proposals from both CCG/CFI and their current bank and decided to move forward with the bank option. Ten days later, the company contacted CCG again, explaining that the bank wasn’t moving quickly enough, and they intended to move forward with the CCG proposal.

Within two weeks (and over the Thanksgiving holiday), CCG inspected over 85 assets, verifying titles and VINs, and obtained pay-off letters from more than 15 creditors, including the IRS.

The complete transaction included:

  • Refinancing of all existing equipment debt, consolidating the number of creditors to one
  • Providing working capital to clear the IRS lien
  • Establishing an invoice factoring line of over $1.5 million to provide working capital and improve cash flow

The whole process was completed in less than 60 days and closed before Christmas. The company is doing well and CCG has since financed additional equipment for expansion.
