Bala Cynwyd, Penn. – Context Business Lending, LLC (“CBL”) a family office-backed leading, national asset-based lender, has grown its investing power by increasing its warehouse line by bringing Texas Capital Bank as Joint Lead Arranger into its warehouse facility, led by CIBC Bank USA as agent. CBL has enjoyed tremendous growth in its quest to disrupt asset-based lending (ABL), nearly quadrupling its portfolio in 2020. The enhanced credit facility will enable CBL to keep costs down and facilitate further portfolio growth.

CIBC and Texas Capital Bank both took the time to understand our vision and partner with us to allow for needed flexibility as we continue to grow.” said Meredith Carter, President and CEO.
CBL is becoming increasingly well known in the specialty lending space for its differentiated thinking as evidenced by its focus on a customer-centric, bottoms-up approach to lending and new products like their E-Commerce division. “We are excited to welcome CBL to our growing list of specialty finance clients. Lender finance has been an increasingly important focus for us and CBL embodies the forward-thinking lenders we want to be aligned with.” Said Steven Katz, SVP, Commercial Lender Finance at Texas Capital Bank.
