Growth & Transition Capital

Our Growth & Transition Capital team offers mezzanine, cash flow and quasi-equity financing solutions on flexible terms to both established and high-revenue companies. These solutions allow your clients to raise capital when they have insufficient tangible assets to pledge for security and don’t want to dilute ownership.

With financing from $250,000 to $35M, the key benefits that apply to these solutions are:

  • Financing customized to keep vital cash flow in the company
  • Security is subordinated to secured lenders
  • Limits dilution of ownership and in most cases, BDC will require no shareholder agreement, management rights and no board of directors representative
  • Personal assets are not taken as collateral
