Interstate Capital Corporation, one of North America’s largest independent factoring companies, announced record-breaking results for the month of April 2014. Accounts receivable factoring is a financial transaction between a cash- or credit-constrained seller of a receivable (invoice) and an investor (a buyer of an invoice) at a discounted rate, in which the seller obtains immediate payment from the buyer, and the buyer waits to collect payment on the purchased invoice from the seller’s customer.
On nearly $70 million of receivables purchased in April 2014, Interstate Capital posted a record 30% year-over-year growth rate. According to Interstate Capital President, Tony Furman, “Seasonally, we see a pattern of increased factoring activity coming out of the slower winter shipping season. April is traditionally a strong month, but by summer, we expect receivable purchases to top $75 million per month.” Interstate Capital signed and funded approximately 100 new clients in March and April, accounting for some of April’s record results; but, mostly, Interstate’s growth is attributable to already-existing clients selling more invoices, combined with a modest increase in the average invoices size. Compared to the same periods in 2013, Interstate Capital realized 2014 growth rates of 18% and 21% in fee income and investment portfolio size, respectively.
