Cash Flow Lending
As our core business, our
lending arm was established
in 2007 to fill the void of institutional cash flow lenders to an underserved marketplace left by the recent consolidation
of capital providers. As a cash flow lender, we provide unitranche and junior capiatl loans to lower middle
market, non-distressed companies generating predictable cash flow, seeking acquisition financing, refinancing of existing
debt, recapitalization or growth finance.
We are open to companies within most industries, having
previously underwritten loans to manufacturing, distribution, business service, healthcare, consumer and information technology
companies. While we specialize in acquisition finance and management buyouts, we also provide capital to firms in need of
growth capital, bridge financing, recaps or shareholder distributions. We are willing to underwrite opportunistic deals, with
or without sponsors, as a lead lender or participant. Our team of experienced professionals is capable of closing deals that
require a quick turnaround from due diligence to funding.
Independent Sponsor Activities
As an independent sponsor, Boone invests in lower
middle market companies, either taking a control position alongside management, or as a co-investor alongside other independent
sponsors. The Boone team has extensive experience in origination, due diligence, investment, operations and management
of companies in the lower middle marketplace. Target industries include a broad array of sectors, including healthcare
services, manufacturing, business services and information technology.
Asset Based Lending
Realizing that many
of our clients frequently require financing needs for specific collateral, we can also provide more traditional asset based
financing solutions. for small and lower middle market companies that are seeking more traditional credit facilities through
our investment partners, whether it be a local or regional bank or a non-bank lender such as a commercial finance company
or a hedge fund. We can provide the following types of asset based lending facilities:
· Purchase Orders
Machinery & Equipment
· SBA Guaranteed
Complementing its principal activities,
we work with select lenders and investors to broaden the scope of our principal activities and to provide the optimal financing
structure for issuers and intermediaries in such cases that don’t fit our lower middle market cash flow credit criteria.
Merchant banking and advisory activities are conducted through our distribution network of lenders and investors with whom
our principals have transacted more than one hundred investments over the past 30 years. Representative transactions include
structured equity, management buyouts, leveraged recaps, growth and project financings.
