Our mezzanine capital strategy invests in lower middle market mezzanine debt and equity opportunities and is managed by an experienced lending team. We are a strategic partner to commercial banks, private equity sponsors, and management teams by providing funding to companies for growth, buyout transactions, acquisitions, and recapitalizations.
Based in Atlanta, 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. The three partners have over 70 years of combined experience in the Southeast advising and investing in lower middle market companies. In total, the partners have invested over $300 million of capital, including second lien, mezzanine debt, and equity capital across 47 transactions. We are focused on building lasting, value-added relationships with commercial bankers, private equity sponsors, intermediaries, and with the companies in which we invest.
Significant transactional experience provides our mezzanine lending team with the ability to quickly analyze individual opportunities and make investment decisions expediently. We are also able to flexibly structure investments to best meet the needs of all parties to the transaction.
We believe that we also add continuing value to each investment we make. Through our long-time roles as corporate managers, advisors and investors, we help management identify emerging issues and opportunities and formulate appropriate responses. Our team’s extensive network of relationships greatly expands the resources available to companies in which we invest.
Finally, our team is committed to approaching every inquiry and request with responsiveness, integrity, and professionalism.
