After years of stable cash flow, Lonsdale Event Rentals had outgrown their existing facilities and decided to streamline their business by consolidating their three locations into one much larger one. In doing so, they incurred a tremendous amount of moving costs, business disruption, and one-off fees that negatively impacted that fiscal years’ results. Their existing bank failed to take the time to understand the full story behind the issues they were experiencing and the positive impact the move was going to have on their business going forward. It had got to the point where they felt their existing bank was becoming more of an inhibitor of their success rather than a partner in it. At the same time, the business was booming so ownership didn’t have time to seek alternate financing arrangements. Lonsdale Events’ principal Chris was advised to engage Ashdown to lead them through the process.
