Asset-Based Lending

  • Borrower situations such as high growth, high leverage, temporary losses, significant working capital needs, business seasonality, management buyouts
  • Benefits include increased liquidity via higher advance rates on working capital assets, less pressure on cash flow via interest-only revolving lines of credit
  • Loan commitments range from $3MM to $15MM+

Our Asset-Based Lending (“ABL”) team has over 40 years of collective experience, has arranged and closed more than $350MM in total ABL commitments, and has performed field audits for 350+ borrowers.

Leveraged Finance

  • Often used to finance the acquisition, recapitalization, growth, or refinancing of companies by private equity investors
  • The amount of senior term debt is based on a multiple of the borrower’s annual cash flow (vs. the amount of available collateral) and can be used to optimize a company’s capital stack and enhance private equity returns
  • Loan commitments range from $3MM to $15MM+

Our Leveraged Finance team has over 35 years of collective leveraged and corporate finance experience, and has arranged and closed over 150 transactions totaling more than $750MM.
