Our mezzanine capital strategy has invested in lower middle market mezzanine debt and equity opportunities. We have functioned as a strategic partner to commercial banks, private equity sponsors, and management teams by providing funding to companies for growth, buyout transactions, acquisitions, and recapitalizations. This mezzanine strategy was formed to provide subordinated debt and equity to lower middle market companies based in the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Mid-West. We have focused on building lasting, value-added relationships with commercial bankers, private equity sponsors, intermediaries, and with the companies in which we have invested. Through our long-time roles as corporate managers, advisors and investors, we have helped management identify emerging issues and opportunities.
