"The pre-existing relationship is good"

We were a preexisting customer so I was able to email them directly and work with Jay who requested the information and reports and delivered the facility pretty quickly, within a week. The preexisting relationship is good, and the terms are market facing, good terms; we're not paying a ridiculous rate for the facility. In this case it's helped us to complete on business acquisitions. It was excellent!
