Stefan Savic Co-Presents for Strafford Merchant Cash Advance Seminar

Posted on August 31, 2017 at 9:22 pm by / 0

Partner Stefan Savic Co-Presented for Strafford’s seminar on Structuring Merchant Cash Advances. This webinar provides finance counsel to structure and document merchant cash advance transactions. Stefan Savic was carefully selected for the presentation as a leader in this field bringing critical knowledge and insights.

MCAs have become a working capital financing alternative for startups and emerging businesses that may not have access to traditional lending sources. Recent cases brought by “borrowers” who allege violation of usury statutes are instructive on the issue of when an MCA might be categorized as a loan rather than a sale of accounts.

The focus of Stefan’s presentation was on recent cases setting a precedent for Merchant Cash advance law and the lessons learned from these cases. These cases defined MCA characterization as loans for businesses, cases that distinguish MCA agreements from loans, and cases that interpret common provisions in MCA agreements. Stefan Savic has extensive experience counseling business on Merchant Cash Advances and his practice focuses on commercial litigation in federal and state courts pertaining to these issues.

Among other MCA issues, the panel reviewed these other key issues:

Why is a “true sale” important in structuring an MCA?

How do payment structures differ between an MCA and a traditional loan?

What does recent case law suggest about structuring MCAs?

How are MCAs treated in bankruptcy?

The 90 minute webinar includes a Q&A period which includes insight into this and other issues includding Documenting True Sale and Contingent Payments; Avoiding Loan Categorization; UCC, Licensing and Usury Considerations.
