Factoring
ICS Bridging Finance provides factoring services to nearly any business that invoices or extends credit to their customers for services rendered and/or products delivered. Factoring allows businesses to easily turn their credit worthy receivables into immediate cash to improve cash flow. Accounts receivable financing is commonly known as factoring. Factoring improves cash flow and increases working capital without new or additional debt. Factoring improves operating leverage, purchasing power, sales and ultimately profitability. Personal guaranties may be waived for qualified companies.
Factoring converts accounts receivable into cash. Cash becomes immediately available to take advantage of growth opportunities, reduce debt or pay daily operating expenses.
Factoring is the process whereby an invoice or purchase order is submitted to the factor for credit approval. First the product is shipped or the service performed. The invoice and related support is submitted to the factor.
The invoice is typically used to draw eighty to ninety percent (80-90%) as a cash advance from the factor prior to payment by the customer. The remaining ten to twenty percent (10-20%) is held in reserve with the factor. When the payment is received, the factor releases the reserve less the charges incurred back to the company.

Whether it is a contract to deliver generators after a storm in Mombasa, vehicles in the Rift Valley or elevators to an Embassy in Uganda, Integrated Capital Solutions understands the government contracting process and the unique needs involved with financing and fulfilling these contracts.

Asset-Based Loan Solutions
ICS offers customized lending packages for businesses restricted by conventional bank financing. Asset-based loans are more difficult to qualify than factoring facilities. We make commitments faster and resolve problems decisively.
Asset-based loans can be secured by accounts receivable, real estate, inventory or other assets.
Working Capital
Lack of working capital is a challenge for many companies during expansion. We specialize in helping companies that do not have bank financing, or do not have enough bank financing to allow for growth.
Lines of Credit
Bank lines or credit often overlook the full borrowing power of businesses due to specific formulas, covenants and leverage requirements. Qualifications for asset-based loans generally require a turnaround or profitability in the previous quarter.
ICS’s focuses on your transaction and its financial viability. Unlike traditional finance sources, ICS’s unique approach to providing finance solutions is not solely concerned with the balance sheet and income statement of the company but the economics of the opportunity at hand and the company’s ability to perform if provided sufficient capital.
Management Expertise
ICS finances companies with proven expertise in their field, even if they are a start-up.
Reliable Sourcing
ICS funds transactions with suppliers/subcontractors and manufacturers that have a proven track record.
Valid Purchase Orders and Contracts
ICS will provide financing bases upon firm valid purchase orders issued by creditworthy companies or governmental entities. ICS will not support consignment transactions.
Verifiable Repayment
ICS bridges the capital needs to acquire or manufacture inventory to fulfill purchase orders and contracts.
