Mezzanine Debt

A solution suited for increasing financing demand

Given recent changes to lending regulations, banks have been faced with the diminishing ability to provide credit. The shrinking availability of credit provided by banks has caused many European companies to turn to investment management firms for their financing needs.

A financing solution favoured by business leaders and investors

Beyond offering stability in a cyclical market, business leaders and investors are partial to this type of non-dilutive financing. For investors, it offers visibility, reoccurring cash flow and better protection in the event of default.

Our approach

We invest in both mezzanine debt for an LBO (subordinated debt) or directly in private debt. Our focus is on the small to midcap market (enterprise values below €500 Million). We invest in defensive companies with low existing levels of debt and those which provide significant revenue visibility. We look to generate returns greater than 10%.

Our experience

Our teams and those of our partners have significant experience in mezzanine financing. They have invested over €250 Million in over 50 transactions.
