Right From The Heart
Hard Money Conference February 25th Las Vegas, 100% Commercial JV, Monster Corps, FPA Questions, 20100217
Greetings from beautiful North San Diego County- Encinitas where temperatures are in the low 70’s and the sky is blue!
Thanks to each of you that called and emailed condolences for the death of my mother, Gloria Josephine Tufo, age 77. Mom died Sunday morning, January 31st at 6:55AM.
I’ve been in Encinitas since Saturday February 13th. The service was Monday February 15th at St James in Solana Beach. Interment was Tuesday, February 16th at Mission San Luis Rey in Oceanside CA.
I plan on meeting with Chris ,who has access to trading programs, Wednesday February 17th. I have written about Chris several times. Here are two articles that you can access through our private subscription site: http://joetufo.com/blog/leased-cash-private-placement-platform-trades and http://joetufo.com/blog/trading-programs-from-chris-a-seasoned-trader
If you are located along the way I’ll be happy to meet with you.
I expect to be back in the office at my desk 7AM Thursday February 18th. I am accessible by cell as dozens have discovered.
This came in Thursday February 11th:
Sorry for such the delay, but I’ve just checked my e-mail for the first time in three weeks. I’ve been out of touch for a while dealing with some family issues. But I wanted to send my condolences in regards to your mother and your friend Max. I hope you find some solace in the fact that they are in a better place…
If there’s anything I can do to help, don’t hesitate to call.
Having said that, there is an opportunity I wish to discuss with you. I’ll be in touch as soon as I have enough information to explain.
Good day sir and thank you for what you’ve taught me about the finance and business in general.
I’ll be in Las Vegas for my good friend Leonard’s Hard Money Conference February 25th at the Monte Carlo.
If you choose to attend be sure to put TUFO in the coupon code to receive two tickets for the price of one. That’s a savings for two of $595 to $895.
This came from Leonard February 2nd:
Thanks…Joe, you are a good friend.
Here’s my itinerary. I’m flying Virgin Atlantic:

|26-Feb-2010||909||LAS VEGAS, NV (LAS) 03:55 PM||SAN FRANCISCO, CA (SFO) 05:25 PM||0|
If you’re located in Vegas you’re welcome to meet with me at The Monte Carlo. I will not have a car.
The key to funding has always been presentation – in fact, poor presentation is the very reason that otherwise great ideas and great projects never receive attention; conversely inferior ideas and projects are funded because the principals made an investment in learning how to get their idea or project funded.
If you have a Large Project that requires funding you may be interested in an 8-Week Course that we are producing: http://joetufo.com/blog/large-project-class
Week 1 – Course Overview – What Will You Learn?-What is Large Project Funding?
Week 2 – The Power of Your Executive Summary – The First Key to Successful Funding
Week 3 – The Power of Your Bio’s – The Second Key to Successful Funding
Week 4 – The Power of Your Detailed Use of Funds – The Third Key to Successful Funding
Week 5 – The Power of Your 5-Year Proforma and Exit Strategy – The Fourth Key to Successful Funding
Week 6 – Putting It All Together – Your Presentation and Proof of Funds
Week 7 – Current Funding Sources and Available Programs
Week 8 – Wrap-Up – What Do You Do Next?
Bonus Week– Q&A With Joe and Large Project Funding Sources
Our websites feature our Business Creed and a pre-qualification application.http://joetufo.com/blog/welcome-to-cash-flow-specialists-inc

Large Project Funding $600m to $5b
by JOE TUFO[EDIT]
Here’s what he sent during our telecon this morning, February 8, 2010:
[9:25:06 AM] PVALLC:
We are able to provide large project financing through our Swiss based private trust under the auspices of the International FED.
We seek to fund projects needing capital infusion from $600M to $5B.
Our process provides the capital needed as a grant.
The client has no repayment obligation.
This is an “open kimono” transparent process for clients.
The trust will fund world wide beneficial projects. Think Economic Growth.
The client retains ownership of all projects and their future cash flows.
All final negotiations are done in Switzerland. It is at that time that clients receive full transparent and open disclosure in private meetings.
Clients must verify ownership of at least $100M USD capital to be eligible.
I introduced Carl who has a client with $100m liquid to Mitch and we had an 11-minute conference call this morning. The $100m will yield a $600m grant in one year and can be doubled to $1.2b in two years.
Monster Corporation Update
Hector and Peter fund new corporations about 30% of the time. They have three sizes of funding available:
$500,000 $38,000 up front and 12% back end fee
$1,500,000 $75,000 up front and 12% back end fee
$2,000,000 $95,000 up front and 12% back end fee
You can read more here:
I was surprised to learn that 70% of the time they fund existing corporations who, for whatever reason, strike out with local banks.
In my experience, funding is all about presentation.
Hector and Peter funded a manufacturer that had been in business for several years. The president of the company had visited three banks and was turned down by each bank.
They paid a fee to Hector and Peter. They cooperated with the process and within 60 business days were funded $4,450,000!
Isn’t that amazing? Here was a company that had been in business for many years. Their books were a mess. They hadn’t filed corporate income taxes in two years.
Hector and Peter put down their heads and rolled up their sleeves and got the company to do exactly what they were told to do. That’s what it takes to get funding: pay the fee for professional services, mutual cooperation, up-to-date books, current tax returns, and paying a back end fee.
What did it cost? $30,000 up front and about $534,000 back end. Was it worth it? They thought so.
The largest funding to date was in November 2008 for $14,500,000. That company used the money to more than double their work force from 55 to 125. Sales increased by more than double too and more importantly the value of the business increased from $22m to $52m.
Looking for a way to generate a badly needed cash injection?
If you have a minimum 700 FICO score on all three bureaus, have no more than a 30% debt to high credit limit or are willing to pay down debt, can wait 60 business days, are mutually cooperative, have a good executive summary, bio’s of key people, a detailed use of funds, a five-year pro-forma and powerful exit strategy with the funds to get started call me at 1-800-669-2700.

Please remember that we have two primary websites:
Working Capital Fast is a free site for the general public.
Our corporate website is a subscription site that archives newsletters, audio, video, advanced alternative funding solutions, proprietary products, and confidential solutions that we don’t want the general public to access without subscribing.
How We Work
Our websites are at http://www.workingcapitalfast.com which is about 600 pages (January ’10) and http://www.joetufo.com/blog our subscription site which has about three times the content. It also archives the newsletters.
Our websites feature our Business Creed and a pre-qualification application. We offer a one-time FREE 20-minute consultation to those who complete the questionnaire completely. This is a $333.34 value based on our hourly consulting fee. Of course, you may purchase additional time at http://www.joetufo.com/consulting
We work one of two ways:
Priority – If you want us to “Clear The Decks” put our heads down and get to work you’ll honor us by paying a fee for six months of service. You may renew after that time.
When you hire us to work on a priority basis we thoroughly study your submission package to make sure that it complies with our recommended Road Map to Funding Success. Funding has always been about presentation. Those who present well are funded. Those who don’t present well are not funded.
The key ingredients to funding success, in our experience, have been:
- A powerful Executive Summary of one to four pages. You can purchase our template and video review at http://www.joetufo.com/roadmap
- Bio’s of key personnel.
- A detailed use of funds broken down monthly for the first year and quarterly thereafter.
- A 5-year proforma and written Exit Strategy.
When we meet face-to-face we’ll review the following questions:
• What do you expect from us?
• What is your current pain?
• What keeps you awake at night?
• How do you see us helping you address these challenges and opportunities?
• What growth plans do you have?
• If price were not an issue, what role would you want us to play in your business?
• Do you expect capital needs? New financing?
• Do you anticipate any mergers, purchases, divestitures, recapitalizations, or reorganizations in the near future?
• We know you are investing in total quality service, as are we. What are the service standards you would like for us to provide you?
• How important is our satisfaction guarantee to you?
• How important is rapid response? What do you consider rapid response?
• Why are you changing professionals? What did you not like about your former firm that you do not want us to repeat?*
• How did you enjoy working with your former firm?**
• Do you envision any other changes in your needs?
• Are you concerned about any of your asset, liability, or income statement accounts to which we should pay particularly close attention?
• If we were to attend certain of your internal management meetings as observers, would you be comfortable with that?
• How do you suggest we best learn about your business so we can relate your operations to the financial information and so we can be more proactive in helping you maximize your business success?
• May our associates tour your facilities?
• What trade journals do you read? What seminars and trade shows do you regularly attend? Would it be possible for us to attend these with you?
• What is your budget for this type of service?
* We never denigrate the predecessor. First, this insults you and reminds you of a poor decision. Second, it diminishes respect and confidence in the profession as a whole and lowers the public’s perception of our professionalism.
** Even though you are changing firms, it is almost certain that you liked certain characteristics of the predecessor. We want to find out what those were and exceed them. For instance, if you said the prior firm always returned phone calls within one day, we strive to return phone calls within four hours.
Non-Priority – If you think that you’ve “nailed it” when preparing the four key ingredients to funding success, and you aren’t in any hurry at all to fund and aren’t quite ready to pay consultation fees then we’ll take a look at your project when we can get to it. After we look at it we may need to send it back because you don’t meet our requirements. (Priority Clients get major help from us in cleaning up their submission.) We’ll return your calls and emails when we can: after all, priority clients come first.
We reserve the right to review each submission once, beyond that our consultation fee will be required. You had better complete the submission request correctly the first time or you better get familiar with our websites mentioned above. If you submit for free we can’t spend a lot of time. It’s not fair to us, our families, or our Priority Clients.
In our experience we can fund 1/3 of the files that cross our desks, 1/3 are DOA Dead on Arrival, and the final 1/3 are broken and need to go through some form of remediation which can take hours, days, weeks, months, or years.
We DO NOT GUARANTEE FUNDING. We work on a BEST EFFORTS BASIS.
With 33 years of Financial Services experience we may be uniquely qualified to serve you and those whom you choose to refer.
The LORD will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
We are available 7AM to 5PM M-F Pacific to serve you and those whom you choose to refer. Kindly visit our websites for more information and complete our online application so that we’re prepared before calling you.
