What is Asset-Based Lending?

Banks that offer asset-based lending services, such as TAB Bank, service businesses – not consumers. Because the business is putting down collateral, asset-based loans rates are lower than the interest rates on unsecured loans because the lender will be able to recoup some or even all their losses in case the borrower defaults on the loan. Other terms used interchangeably to describe asset-based lending include commercial finance and asset-based financing.

How Does Asset-Based Lending Work?

In order to meet the routine cash-flow demands of a business, many need to obtain lines of credit or take out loans. For example, if there is a brief delay in payments it expects to receive, a business still needs available cash to cover payroll expenses during the slow time.

If a company does not have enough cash assets or cash flow to cover a loan, banks that do asset-based lending can approve business loans by using the physical assets of the company as collateral.  For example, if a manufacturing company needs to secure a high line of credit against its unused inventory and accounts receivable, they come to us to access working capital and improve cash flow.

What are the Terms and Conditions of Asset-Based Loans?

The terms and conditions of asset-based loans vary greatly depending on the value and type of asset that is provided as security. Highly liquid collateral, or securities that can be easily and readily converted to cash, are the preferred type of assets.

Because asset-based loans carry a substantial amount of risk for the lender, the maximum amount of the loan will typically be less than the book value of the assets. The difference in the amount of the asset-based loan and the actual book value of the securities represents the cost of converting it into cash along with the potential loss in market value.

Stable small and mid-sized businesses that own physical assets are the most common asset-based borrowers. Large corporations also seek out asset-based credit lines, usually to cover short term needs or an extremely time-sensitive cash demand.

What’s the Difference Between Asset-Based Lending and Traditional Financing?

Asset-based lending offers many benefits over traditional forms of financing, including:

  • Management buyouts
  • Rapid growth
  • Working capital
  • Seasonal financial needs

You have fewer financial covenants with asset-based loans.

There are minimal financial covenants with asset-based lending from TAB Bank and the emphasis lies on the performance of the collateral.

Your source of capital is more predictable.

The borrowing availability is directly tied to the assets of your company, which can maximize liquidity. This is in stark contrast to borrowing against multiple earnings (EBITDA) – which is often more volatile.

Asset-based lending can act as a revolving line of credit.

Because more funds can be re-borrowed as repayments are made, an asset-based loan serves as a revolving line of credit.

Other factors are considered to determine eligibility for asset-based loans.

Approval for an asset-based credit line is determined by advance rates against eligible inventory, collateral, and the performance and quality of that collateral.

“They understand.”

After enduring a rocky relationship with an out-of-state bank for four years, Interide Transportation decided it was time for a change. After partnering with TAB Bank, Steven Gadd, a co-owner of Interide, said, “…it honestly felt like we had died and went to heaven.” Interide recently needed a large letter of credit and sought the help of both its traditional bank and TAB Bank. Not only did Interide’s traditional bank respond with a rejection, but it took three weeks and phone call from Gadd to get the answer. However, Interide’s experience with TAB Bank was different. “Our banker at TAB absolutely went to work. He got very creative and he made it happen with his creativity and aggressiveness.” Gadd recommends trucking companies should partner with TAB Bank simply because “they understand trucking.”
