WD Music is a one-of-a-kind company, but their path to growth was blocked by a problem faced by thousands of small and
mid-sized businesses: their precious capital was tied up in a long cash-conversion cycle. WD Music had to pay suppliers in-full
for guitar parts, then wait weeks or months to recoup the cash from customer sales. This left them without the working capital

of WD Music, was speaking with Greg Kleehammer, from UPS Capital®. Kleehammer asked a simple question: “What if you could take one of your company’s biggest assets — your in-transit inventory — and turn it into working capital?” That’s how WD Music discovered an alternative-financing solution that opened the door to more growth, more prosperity and a lot less stress.
