The Company: Provider of procurement and spend management software to mid-market businesses.

The Financing Situation: The Company had legacy bank debt from a previous acquisition that was underwritten primarily by cash flow, not recurring revenue. The Company’s growth plan called for re-investing all excess cash flow into growth, which conflicted with the profitability-based covenants of its existing credit facility. The existing bank lender was unable to re-underwrite its loan based on recurring revenue so sought to exit the loan at maturity. The Company needed an experienced tech lending partner who better understood its SaaS business model and could scale with the Company as it executed on its growth objectives.

The Solution: SG structured a $2.75 million term loan to pay off the Company’s existing lender and provide additional liquidity to support its continued growth plan. SG was able to get comfortable based on the Company’s recurring revenue, strong SaaS metrics, and experienced management team.
