TEDx Talk: “Forget Economics”

Garrett Fisher delivered his first TEDx talk at TEDx NapaValley in Napa, CA, with the subject “Forget Economics.” True to his economic innovation model, his “idea worth spreading” is that economics is too focused on money. Perhaps we ought to think about why we spend, or do not spend our hard-earned currencies, and we can head into uncovered territory in the field of economics.

Firm Closes $5.6MM Credit Facility

December 28, 2011

FinanceSolutions secured and closed a $5.6MM credit facility with Park Sterling Bank for a private distribution-based client in the Carolinas. The facility consists of a $3.5MM line of credit coupled with $2.1MM term debt and consists of superior interest rates and amortization periods than the client’s prior credit facility. “We were very pleased with Park Sterling’s relationship model, forward-thinking approach and flawless execution of the close. The team at Park Sterling has a refreshing “can do” attitude backed by their performance despite harsh credit conditions in the marketplace” said Garrett Fisher, Managing Director of FinanceSolutions. The facility is the culmination of a turnaround engagement involving a full balance sheet recapitalization along with operational restructuring. The facility closed in December 2011.
