FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., (January 22nd , 2020) – First National Capital Corporation (“FNCC”), a full-service commercial equipment and aviation finance provider, has announced record Q4 fundings of $120MM and $258.5MM for FY 2019. In addition, year over year performance in all key categories was exceptional with both new and current customer additions increasing 11%, estimated EBITDA growth of 13%, and most exciting was on balance sheet asset growth of over $25 million for 2019.
Keith Duggan, CEO and Founder of FNCC stated, “2019 was another terrific year for First National. Our ever-growing team delivered exceptional customer service while meeting our clients continued need for lease and equipment finance alternatives. Delivering a record 4th quarter performance was a great way to end the year, while positioning us for further robust growth in 2020.”
Mr. Duggan further stated, “This record achievement is only made possible by our superb team of dedicated and knowledgeable professionals, committed to finding sometimes difficult to create solutions for our clients. We remain laser-focused on, “Getting Deals Done!”
Mr. Duggan further went on to state “The true benefits of becoming an ESOP (Employee Owned Company) really took hold in 2019. While many owners, founders and key equity holders in this industry do quite well financially, First National has taken the unprecedented step of allowing every single employee to participate in the “equity ownership” of First National through the ESOP. I think the employees now understand, that “part of this company is mine”, and as such everyone is striving to constantly improve our company, our clients experience and build real value. It’s been exciting to watch the transition over the last 4 years since completing the ESOP in 2015.”
