Client Comments


Richard W - Manufacturing Company


We were referred to Bennett Brown at Thunderbird Corporate Finance  from our CPA after our primary bank was unable to complete the financing  we were seeking.  Bennett worked with us on refinancing a seller  carry-back from when I bought out my partner along with establishing a  working capital line of credit  to meet our business cash flow needs.  In  working with Bennett, he took the time to dig into our situation and  structure the transaction to where there we two banks interested in  providing our financing as requested.  Bennett worked with us through  the process of determining which bank would fit our long term banking needs and then interacting with the bank until the loan closed.
I  would certainly recommend Mr. Brown and Thunderbird Corporate Finance  as a partner in assisting business in securing business capital as we  found his services of great value and continue to use him as a resource.

Partner Buyout Financing

 A national sales and marketing organization  specializing in “In-Bound” calls selling Business to Consumer products  and services.

My partner and I built a profitable  organization over the past 10 years and it became time for me to buyout  his interest.  Being a service organization with no hard assets created  some challenges in securing the capital to buyout my partner via  traditional banking channels.  We were referred to Bennett Brown at  Thunderbird Corporate Finance who assisted us in securing the financing  we were seeking at a very favorable rate and structure.  Mr. Brown was able to secure term sheets from several lenders who understood our  business model and opportunity we had to grow the organization.  He then  represented us at the selected bank throughout the transaction dealing  with a number of issues that arouse during the process and keeping the  transaction on tract leading to a successful buyout of my partner.  
I  would certainly recommend Mr. Brown and Thunderbird Corporate Finance  as a partner in assisting business in securing business capital as we  found his services of great value.

Debt restructuring

It is with great pleasure that we offer this letter of recommendation for Bennett Brown and Thunderbird Corporate Finance. Prior to engaging in an agreement with TCF we attempted to secure financing on our own.  The process was very time consuming and netted unsatisfactory results.  Because time was of the essence in our situation, we decided to pursue other avenues.  Our accountant recommended Bennett and TCF. When we first met with Bennett he explained that many successful loans result from properly presenting your company and its goals to the financial decision makers.    We were very impressed by how thorough Bennett was in his assessment of our situation.  He took the time to learn about our company’s finances, business model, and vision for future growth.  He also got to know us as individuals and subsequently presented the entire package to a lender that approved our loan.  Bennett acted as the conduit for information flow between our company 

and the lender throughout the application, underwriting, and approval stages of the loan.  Because of his methodical approach and access to the right contacts our loan was funded in less than six weeks from the time we began working with Bennett and TCF.   In our opinion, if you’ve got a challenging lending scenario, Bennett Brown is the right person for the job.

Thank you and best of luck.
