Hard asset-secured lender funded deals in 44 states across the U.S.
LOS ANGELES, CALIF. – January 31, 2019 – Maxim Commercial Capital announced today that it funded 927 hard asset-secured loans for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) during 2018, a 6.3% increase over the prior year. The transactions facilitated heavy equipment purchases, refinanced high-cost debt, and funded bridge loans and working capital for business expansion. Maxim provides financing in amounts up to $3,000,000 secured by heavy equipment and real estate, including second and third liens on residential, multifamily and commercial properties.
“The best part of our job is learning about a prospective borrower’s goals so we can help transform them into reality,” said Michael Kianmahd, executive vice president at Maxim. “The process may involve identifying additional collateral owned by the borrower to backstop a loan, or helping a newly-licensed truck owner-operator figure out how much he can afford in monthly payments on his loan.”
The largest transaction Maxim funded during the year was growth capital for a start-up music licensing company with negligible revenue. The family-owned business had been turned down by multiple banks due to one partner’s tax issues from the sale of an unrelated business. Maxim quickly identified sufficient equity in a New York condominium owned by family members to secure the financing they needed, and successfully funded the loan in a timely manner.
The smaller transactions funded during the year facilitated Class 8 and Class 6 used truck purchases by owner-operators with challenged credit. A national leader of used truck financing, Maxim provides same-day approvals.
Other highlights for Maxim during 2018 included moving to a larger office, expanding the team from 26 to 29 members and launching a new, comprehensive website. These activities will support the company’s continued growth in 2019, its tenth anniversary year.
