We see more and more sophisticated players in the space and to me, it’s a sign that the industry is on the right track to be the major funding source of businesses in America. Being able to close two facilities within 15 months is strong evidence that Yalber has a lot to offer. As pioneers in this space, I think it's important we stay ahead of the curve, specifically in terms of analysis of our merchant's needs and our internal decision-making process. In that sense, Park Cities Asset Management and Yalber share the same vision.”
