U.S. companies' borrowing to spend on capital investment rose 6 percent in October from a year earlier, a trade group representing capital equipment lenders said on Tuesday.
The companies signed up for $8.9 billion in new loans, leases and lines of credit last month, up from $8.4 billion a year earlier, the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA) said.
The increase in volume was helped by an expanding U.S. economy and lower corporate taxes, which continued to support capital spending by businesses.
"October new business generation shows no apparent signs of slowing down, despite slightand steadyincreases in long-term interest rates and reports of tariff concerns," ELFA Chief Executive Ralph Petta said in a statement.
"With another round of interest rate hikes scheduled before year-end, we will be monitoring closely any changes in business conditions."
Washington-based ELFA, which reports economic activity for the $1 trillion equipment finance sector, said credit approvals were 76.5 percent in October, up from 75.7 percent in September.
ELFA's leasing and finance index measures the volume of commercial equipment financed in the United States. It is designed to complement the U.S. Commerce Department's durable goods orders report, which it typically precedes by a few days.
The Equipment Leasing and Finance Foundation, ELFA's non-profit affiliate, said its confidence index for November was 58.5, down from the October index of 63.2.
A reading of above 50 indicates a positive outlook.
