Fifth Third Bank Teams with PrimeRevenue, Expanding Bank’s Supply Chain Finance Solutions for Commercial Clients

Collaboration Taps Into PrimeRevenue’s Leading Technology, Data and Support Framework

Cincinnati and Atlanta (December 6, 2022)—Fifth Third Bank, National Association, and PrimeRevenue, the global leader in working capital and B2B payment solutions, today announced that they will be joining forces. A strategic relationship designed to help enterprise and mid-market customers navigate supply chain disruptions and broader macroeconomic uncertainty, the collaboration marks an enhancement of Fifth Third’s working capital and trade payables solutions, which empower businesses to unlock otherwise untapped capital and cash flow.

Fifth Third will continue leveraging PrimeRevenue’s award-winning technology and best practices spanning areas including data, support and sales, which have been developed over the course of nearly two decades.

“With this strategic relationship, PrimeRevenue and Fifth Third are working together to help businesses unlock capital and cash flow that enables continued growth, scaling and innovation—even through uncertainty and volatility in the broader macroeconomic landscape,” said Natalie O’Donnell, Senior Vice President, Global Head of Marketing, PrimeRevenue. “An alternative to taking on debt, supply chain financing is a tool and lever that companies can rely on to strengthen and de-risk their supply chains.”

How Supply Chain Finance Works

Supply chain finance is a means for buyers to pay their invoices at a later date while still providing faster access to cash for suppliers. A funder typically purchases a buyer’s invoice for a nominal fee, extending the payment term for that buyer while paying the supplier before the invoice’s maturation date. Afterwards, the buyer pays the bank the invoice amount directly.

“At PrimeRevenue, we take pride in our commitment to the values of performance, respect, innovation, diversity, excellence and integrity. We are thrilled to work alongside Fifth Third, a company that embodies these values, to provide solutions that help empower businesses to thrive and achieve their goals,” said Gavin Cicchinelli, Chief Operating Officer, PrimeRevenue.

“We provide our clients with options and solutions to meet their strategic goals. It is part of Fifth Third’s value as a comprehensive, relationship-driven bank,” said Fifth Third Bank Executive Vice President and Head of Corporate Banking Kevin Khanna. “Leveraging PrimeRevenue’s technology and platform allows access to additional alternatives that businesses need to optimize working capital and strengthen supply chain sustainability.”
