Case study: Canadian hi-tech company mitigating key constraints to scale


  • Company has sales of $450 million per year
  • Strong balance sheet with high cash levels
  • Recent operating losses due to effects of Covid-19
  • Contract manufacturers in Asia are shut down due to Covid restrictions
  • Company views Covid problems as temporary and wants to be ready when production resumes
  • Company is concerned that if it places a moratorium on orders from suppliers, they will lose their relationships and be moved to the bottom of the list for shipments when its contract manufacturers do resume productions
  • Despite strong cash position, Company does not want to continue to draw down cash reserves over coming two quarters
  • Company has a revolving line of credit, but inventories held at contract manufacturers facilities in Asia do not count for borrowing base.  Bank will lend only on assets held in North America
