Financing

Kutak Rock has unique capabilities to handle financing transactions for clients in the firearms industry. Because of Kutak Rock’s knowledge of the firearms industry as well as commercial finance, we can effectively advocate for your company in structuring and negotiating financing transactions with a variety of financial institutions.

Financial arrangements with companies in the firearms industry require more planning and regulatory considerations than in a typical financing. The Gun Control Act and the Commerce in Firearms and Ammunition regulations restrict the sale and transfer of firearms and ammunition and care and these restrictions must be considered when structuring an asset-backed loan. In particular, in revolving credit facilities, some inventory is subject to restrictions under federal and state laws, while other inventory is not.

Kutak Rock’s expertise in the firearms industry enables us to effectively work with financial institutions in understanding and being comfortable with any perceived risk due to such regulations. The firm’s experience in all types of commercial financings gives us the ability to advocate for its firearms clients and structure provisions that enable such clients to continue to operate their businesses under the financing terms.

Our firm’s commercial and structured finance practice integrates our front-end structuring, negotiation and documentation practice with our back-end workouts, restructuring and bankruptcy practice.

Kutak Rock’s deep experience in handling commercial and structured finance transactions is complemented by our prominent and nationally recognized bankruptcy practice representing both creditors and business debtors in all aspects of reorganization, asset sales and other workout proceedings.
