07/2/2014 – Paragon Financial Group, Inc. Creates Unique Programs to Meet the Funding Needs of Minority Business Enterprise or Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (MBE/DBE)

Posted by on July 2, 2014 in | 0 comments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Ft Lauderdale FL – July 2, 2014: Paragon Financial Group, Inc. has developed unique programs designed to meet the funding needs of Minority Business Enterprise or Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (MBE/DBE). These programs are available for US companies through Paragon Financial’s corporate, federal, state and local government MBE/DBE programs. Paragon Financial created these programs to meet the specific funding needs of minority and disadvantaged businesses through: Letters of Comfort or Financial Capability Certification Program: This program provides MBE/DBE clients with contingent financing commitments allowing them to demonstrate to government contracting officers and large U.S. corporations they possess the financial wherewithal to execute on contract awards. This results in Paragon Financial’s MBE/DBE clients winning more and larger contracts. Vendor Guarantee Programs: A supplier or vendor guarantee allows MBE/DBE’s and their suppliers to mitigate risk by taking advantage of Paragon Financial’s credit and guarantee of invoice factoring proceeds to the MBE/DBE supplier. Vendor or supplier guarantees work especially well for start-ups or newer companies that have a limited credit profile. This arrangement allows for more goods to be sold by both Paragon’s client and their suppliers then would have otherwise been possible. It also gives large corporations and government entities the peace of mind that MBE/DBE’s can properly fulfill contracts. Work in Process (WIP) Funding: Work-in-process (WIP) is part of a company’s inventory that is partially completed and can be leveraged to obtain working capital for the MBE/DBE client. Paragon Financial is one of the few non-bank lenders offering WIP financing. Paragon Financial is able to leverage their manufacturing expertise to help mitigate risk for all parties involved. Purchase Order Funding: Purchase order financing gives a MBE/DBE client the ability to have goods available for their own clients before an invoice is generated. PO financing is an excellent solution for MBE/DBE companies that are product wholesalers, importers, jobbers, resellers or distributors. AR Management and Credit Protection: Invoice Factoring is a form of Accounts Receivable (AR) management. Every Fortune 1000 company in the world utilizes it as a tool (HP factored $2 billion in AR 1st quarter 2014) or pays the invoice factoring company utilized by their vendors, suppliers and service providers. Paragon Financial’s MBE/DBE clients receive this extra layer of security with credit protection. Government Factoring: Through Paragon Financial’s MBE/DBE government invoice factoring program, MBE/DBE clients receive the funds needed to complete government contracts. Paragon Financial understands the FAR, the culture of government and dealing with the government bureaucracy of local, state and federal agencies. Paragon Financial is registered in The System for Award Management (SAM) and is compliant with the Assignment of Claims Act. Paragon Financial has factored federal government receivables from most departments and agencies, as well as working closely with many of the largest Prime Contractors and the DOD. Registered Minority or Disadvantaged Business Enterprises have incredible opportunities that are not generally accessible by other small businesses.

06/3/2013 – Paragon Financial Sees Increase in Purchase Order Financing Associated with Increase in US International Trade

Posted by on June 4, 2013 in | 0 comments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Ft. Lauderdale, FL – June 4, 2013: Paragon Financial Group (“Paragon”) sees exponential growth in purchase order financing demand across key industries. The United States Census Bureau’s May 2013 report matches this trend with nation’s international trade deficit in goods and services decreased to $38.8 billion in March from $43.6 billion (revised) in February, as imports decreased more than exports. Purchase order financing (PO financing or PO funding) provides an advance to a company’s suppliers against a purchase order from a qualified customer so that the company can deliver the product to its customers on time and with the quality required. Paragon Financial’s national sales manager, Chris Curtin, states, “We’ve seen rapid growth in purchase order and vendor guarantees. I believe it reflects growth of finished goods into the US.” According to the US Bureau of Economic Analysis March exports of advanced technology products were the highest on record, climbing $4.9 billion to $27.9 billion. This is a 21.5% increase from the February level of $23.0 billion. The greatest increases came from gains in trade in the aerospace group ($1.8 billion) where we currently have a trade surplus of $5.7 billion. Exports in the information and communications group increased $1.3 billion, while exports in the nuclear technology group increased $0.6 billion. PO financing provides the cash that aerospace and technology businesses need to both fill their customers’ orders and expand their business at the same time. It is particularly useful for companies that cannot obtain traditional funding based on their own financial condition or balance sheet, for example, startups, turnarounds, and others whose balance sheets cannot support traditional banking relationships. “Our purchase order funding packages have been working well for our manufacturers, importers, distributors, wholesales and exporter clients in 2013. Companies that sell physical goods often find purchase order funding a great option in obtaining working capital for rapid growth”, says Curtin. ABOUT PARAGON FINANCIAL GROUP For over 19 years, Paragon Financial Group has provided working capital solutions for growing companies throughout the U.S. They serve small to large-size companies across a wide variety of industries through accounts receivable, invoice factoring, and purchase order financing up to $3 million per month in volume.
