Play #2: Cash Reimbursement

Make the Right Call to Manage Your Balance Sheet

As the market and your priorities shift, ensure you’re running the right play by evaluating your current debt positions and purchases made in the last 12-18 months. 

Depending on how you want to shape your balance sheet—with an improved cash position, maximized distributions, paid down debt or investments back into your business—consider a cash reimbursement through a Sale and Leaseback (SLB) with First American. 

How it Works

1. Send your invoices and purchase support to First American

2. First American audits your purchase support and financial information, then provides lease contract 

3. Upon acceptance, you receive 100% of the original purchase price of the equipment 

4. Fixed payments for your equipment begin 

Why SLB is your MVP

  • Improve your YE cash position

  • Consolidate capital acquisitions onto 1 lease

  • Manage bank covenants

  • Pay down high-rate debt

As you're closing out the books and preparing for a strong 2020, consider First American your first draft pick.
