To pursue its acquisition growth strategy, the company needed financing to acquire Big Sky Call Centres in Calgary in order to better service existing clients locally and strengthen its Western Canadian ties with partners and customers.
BDC’s Growth & Transition Capital team provided mezzanine financing with flexible repayment terms, such as a balloon payment at the end of the loan, which allowed the company to maintain vital cash flow to further invest in its growth. With its holistic approach, BDC also provided expert advice to guide the company through a complex deal.
