Debt Financing

Business owners frequently worry that banks might leave them behind during tough times, or are only going to support the business when things are going well. Alerting a bank when performance is poor can be a hard topic to navigate, especially when you need to renegotiate terms. At the same time, businesses can put their banker in a tough spot if there is a surprise covenant violation.
