Confidence of Execution

To us, the phrase “Done Deal” identifies who we are because we do what we say we are going to do — every time. To ensure your acquisition closes on time. To ensure the recapitalization positions the company for an improved financial position. To facilitate the new product or geographic expansion. To power the turnaround that aligns with your firm’s vision and investment objectives.

Taking the Long View

Among your portfolio investments, issues will arise and the market will force change in unexpected ways. In these circumstances, PNC Business Credit capital solutions are often structured to “move with the company” — allowing a more flexible and less restrictive lending relationship. A relationship that can work through complexities with creativity and a relentless client focus that takes a longer view.

We Get the Deal Done

At PNC Business Credit and Steel City Capital Funding, “Done Deal” is not a tagline. It’s who we are.

Consistent, creative, reliable capital in all phases of the business cycle delivered by leading dealmakers who are experts in their field. With us, it's more than confidence of execution. It’s a done deal.
