Mid-sized companies in the national defense space have unique challenges in raising transactional and operating liquidity. The universe of banks and other conventional sources of financing that understand and can work with the vagaries of this marketplace– the DOD contracting and fulfillment process, the unpredictability of cash flows—is small. Even those financial institutions that know the industry tend towards conservative underwriting standards and move too slowly to assist entrepreneurial companies capture new opportunities. Finally, as informational security is central to companies engaged in developing products or delivering services for the nation’s defense, options become very limited.
Scimitar Capital’s breadth of relationships across the financial marketplace delivers rapid access to a range of conventional and non-conventional funding sources. Some of our associates have worked in environments requiring significant security clearances and are fully cognizant of your need for speed, security, and flexibility.
