Mast Capital Partners is an alternative finance company that was established to help fund the cash flow needs of emerging and established brands in the beverage alcohol industry. Based on the considerable industry experience of our principals as well as extensive market research, we have found that many smaller wine, spirits and beer producers have a very difficult time obtaining financing for their working capital needs. Even if they have superior products and a good distribution platform, it is often very difficult for producers/importers to fund monthly operations given that:
The cash needs of many producers/importers often exceed their available cash. Traditional financial institutions are virtually frozen and usually will not lend to businesses such as these.
Mast Capital Partners can offer accounts receivable financing (factoring), inventory term loans, working capital lines of credit, and purchase order financing. Banks base their decisions on a producer/importer’s credit worthiness, whereas our underwriting process is more focused on the value of the receivables/collateral and the creditworthiness of the distributor.
