When considering your company’s place in the market, one strategy to improve cash position is employing a sale and leaseback transaction. A sale and leaseback, or a cash reimbursement, allows your company to be reimbursed 100% of the original purchase price for any capital equipment that was purchased with cash – all without any interruption to its use. Related software, services, and build-out expenses are also eligible for reimbursement.


By strengthening your cash position, you can improve liquidity, maintain debt ratings, and spread the cost of the equipment over the life of the asset – all while positioning your company for growth.
