The owner and his management team were looking to buy out the company’s venture capital investors and regain full control of the company to maximize the firm’s growth potential. Patient capital was required to make this important business transition, as well as invest in key areas such as management, sales and R&D expansion.
BDC’s Growth & Transition Capital team provided mezzanine financing with flexible repayment terms to protect the company’s cash flow and invest in its growth. The firm also benefited from BDC’s guidance on financial management and potential U.S. acquisitions. As well, BDC’s advisory services team helped the company develop a market entry strategy in China.
