Is this need­ed?

In this time of great eco­nom­ic uncer­tain­ty for small busi­ness­es in Amer­i­ca it is impor­tant to remain res­olute and con­tin­ue to forge ahead.  There will be busi­ness­es that do not emerge from this envi­ron­ment and it won’t be out a lack of sales or lack of prof­its but a lack CASH (or access to cash).  As part of a the Cash Flow Man­age­ment and Capac­i­ty Analy­sis offered by MACKEY, let our bank­ing expert with over 20 years in the indus­try help your busi­ness explore fund­ing options via con­ven­tion­al bank chan­nels and Fed­er­al Emer­gency pro­grams options that con­tin­ue to be devised dai­ly to help small busi­ness emerge from this cri­sis and be more resilient as a result.

SBA’s Eco­nom­ic Injury Dis­as­ter Loans offer up to $2 mil­lion in assis­tance for a small busi­ness. These loans can pro­vide vital eco­nom­ic sup­port to small busi­ness­es to help over­come the tem­po­rary loss of rev­enue they are expe­ri­enc­ing.  Eco­nom­ic Injury Dis­as­ter Loans “EIDL” issued by the SBA are made avail­able to small busi­ness­es to help alle­vi­ate eco­nom­ic injury caused by the Coro­n­avirus (COVID-19). Cur­rent­ly EIDL loans are avail­able in States that have sought eco­nom­ic dis­as­ter relief sta­tus spe­cif­ic to COVID-19.  As of March 17, 2002, New Mex­i­co, Cal­i­for­nia, Wash­ing­ton, Maine, Con­necti­cut, Neva­da, Rhode Island, Utah and The Dis­trict of Colum­bia have sought and received such des­ig­na­tion.

EIDL loans can be a vital cash flow tool dur­ing this time of liq­uid­i­ty uncer­tain­ty.  EIDL can help meet fixed debt pay­ments, pay­roll, accounts payable and oth­er bills that can’t be paid because of the disaster’s impact.  The most recent Inter­est rates (3/17) for EIDL loans is 3.75% for small busi­ness­es with­out cred­it avail­able else­where and there are NO SBA FEES for access­ing this pro­gram.  SBA offers loans with long-term repay­ments in order to keep pay­ments afford­able, up to a max­i­mum of 30 years.

The com­mer­cial loan mar­ket is poised to pro­vide cash­flow back into the busi­ness sec­tor pri­mar­i­ly in the form of low­er month­ly inter­est rate envi­ron­ments on new fixed rate loan prod­ucts.   The low­er inter­est rate envi­ron­ment is an effort by the Fed­er­al Reserve’s cen­tral bank to pro­vide eco­nom­ic stim­u­lus to busi­ness own­ers through mon­e­tary pol­i­cy actions (i.e. rate cuts).  Unfor­tu­nate­ly, busi­ness­es in longer term fixed rate debt struc­tures will be unable to par­tic­i­pate in the Fed’s intend­ed stim­u­lus pack­age.  MACKEY would like to assist bor­row­ers in devel­op­ing strate­gies that will cre­ate incre­men­tal cash­flow wins for your busi­ness and take full advan­tage of the Government’s inter­est rate stim­u­lus plan.   A 30-minute review of your company’s cur­rent debt oblig­a­tions with our MACKEY team mem­ber could result in addi­tion­al cash­flow to help fund your busi­ness oper­a­tions.  Robert LaMothe, our newest team mem­ber, has over 15 years of bank­ing expe­ri­ence and is ready to lead these con­ver­sa­tions with you and your finance team.
