A mezzanine debt provider is a lender who provides mezzanine debt, which mostly tends to be funds ranging in size from $100 million to over $ 5 billion. Such providers seek to lend to companies with stable EBITDA levels who can safely service higher levels of debt. Mezzanine debt is a useful source of growth finance in circumstances where bank finance is unavailable and when the existing owners are reluctant to see their own share holdings in the business diluted by new equity investors. Companies can use mezzanine financing for several needs including funding of acquisitions, management buyouts or expansion plans.
What must you look for in a mezzanine debt provider?
Since mezzanine finance combines elements of both debt financing and equity investment it is vital to find the right provider who can provide the most suitable solution. Look for a provider with the following traits.
- A positive track record: Choose a mezzanine debt provider who has a track record of positive outcomes over the course of many years and who is willing to provide references to their successfully completed transactions.
- Ability to provide customized structures: You may be seeking mezzanine debt for fund acquisitions, management buyouts or expansion plans. Your mezzanine provider must be willing to provide bespoke structures that will work in your benefit.
- Willingness to work in your best interests: As with any other financial lender, choose a mezzanine debt provider who provides the best in terms of value on the amount, price, and flexibility of the mezzanine debt raised.
