Posted 08/23/2023

Company sees strong demand for specialty vehicle, upfitter financing solutions

Dallas, TX, August 23, 2023Mitsubishi HC Capital America, the largest non-bank, non-captive finance provider in North America with $7.5 billion in owned and managed assets, recently closed two inventory finance transactions, totaling $400 million, to separate specialty vehicle partners to boost their purchasing power and enhance liquidity.

Mitsubishi HC Capital America has worked with the one long-standing customer for 12 years, said Gary Furnas, the company’s Vice President and General Manager, Inventory Finance. “The relationship and trust we have developed with each other over time speaks to the ability of both the customer and our company to execute such a strong and mutually beneficial contract.”

The other transaction provides an increase to an existing line of credit for a specialty upfitter, who plans to use the funds to acquire van chassis that customers upfit and then sell to their end-user customers. “Demand for these specialty vehicles continues to grow rapidly,” stated Furnas. “We always work to bring value to our customers and make it as easy as possible to understand and be successful in the commercial truck market. Our consultative approach is a tremendous value-add as we work to create a collaborative, customized financing solution that helps generate business growth opportunities.”

Inventory finance at Mitsubishi HC Capital America
Inventory finance goes by many names in the industry, explains Furnas, including floor planning and wholesale finance. As a form of asset-based lending, the amount borrowed is determined by the value of the inventory. Wholesale finance lenders like Mitsubishi HC Capital America can advance rates up to 100% of a dealer’s invoice amount for new inventory as a line of credit.

Benefits of inventory financing include improved cash flow, reduced capital requirements and expanded inventory stocking levels for dealers. Additionally, inventory finance reduces open-account risk and administration for OEMs, upfitters, and chassis suppliers, enabling them to turn their receivables into cash. “As a non-bank wholesale finance lender, Mitsubishi HC Capital America can provide quick credit decisions and expedited funding,” adds Furnas. “By offering tailored inventory financing programs, we enable our North American customers to build strategies to accomplish their growth goals and initiatives. We are here with the expertise, systems and processes to optimize financing structures and quickly close transactions.”
