What does it really take to keep a retail propane business strong and viable? You may find yourself saying, "When I retire and want to sell my business, I want it to be worth something." This is a common feeling throughout the industry.

  Cash is King...   Business

Companies are experiencing higher than normal receivables due in part by the increase in the cost of product, not to mention their own short-term cash flow needs to cover merely one load of propane. Growth also costs money and with the increase of steel prices, having the right financing in place for the growth being sought is critical. It has been said for years, Cash is KING, and it has never been more accurate. This session will focus on the different types of financing available to retail propane marketers and when it is appropriate to use each type of financing. The session will also cover cash flow and proper communication with the lender. Retail propane marketers need to be savvy with their borrowing options. Some retailers need to increase their line of credit merely to cover the time between paying their propane supplier and when they receive their payments from customers. Other companies are seeking to grow and have long-term financing requirements. This session will cover different needs and the appropriate financing options for those needs.
