Variable-Rate Loans

Our variable-rate note program is available to all of our Dexter equipment customers, subject to credit approval. The interest rate fluctuates with prime rate each month. Prime rate used for calculating interest rate on new notes will be that which is published by The Wall Street Journal on the first day of the then current month (Prime rate floor may apply).

For those applicants who have owned/operated an existing business for at least the most recent two year period, notes will be calculated at Prime Rate plus X percent based on the following amounts financed:
