The firm has a capital structure;of approximately 60% debt. This was necessitated by the rapid growth of;B&W, and Mr. Tanner's lack of personal funds to sustain the growth. The 60%;debt amount is quite high for firms in this field, and in fact slightly exceeds;the debt covenants negotiated with the bank. B&W recently received notice;that the bank considers the company's debt to be excessive, and that some;accelerated repayment schedule will be adopted. The notice came at a;particularly bad time. B&W is in the midst of a major upgrade of its own;computer system. The hardware was to have been purchased outright, financed by;the seller, Mike Kerr, longtime friend of Mr. Tanner.;Mr. Kerr really needs Mr. Tanner?s business.
