About Us


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.
