We provide tailored financing solutions for equity sponsors, independent sponsors, business owners, and management teams to effect leveraged buyouts, recapitalizations, add-on acquisitions, and growth. We focus on small to medium sized businesses, investing in a variety of industry verticals.
Our fund structure allows us to invest a flexible mix of subordinated debt and equity to meet the needs of each unique situation. While Centerfield is not a senior lender, we can solicit senior financing proposals from our Bank LP network who invest in our funds, effectively acting as a one-stop financing solution up and down the capital structure.
We are proud of our many long-term partnerships with equity sponsors across the country.
We respond thoughtfully and promptly, endeavoring to support all phases of the investment process.
We pride ourselves on certainty to close, leveraging a sponsor’s due diligence to manage costs and minimize execution risk.
We can assist our investment partners with our network of executives, analytical resources, and business development capabilities.
We are experienced investors who have successfully weathered several business cycles, supporting our portfolio companies and sponsors even during challenging times.
We were backing independent sponsors before the nomenclature existed.
We seek to form close partnerships with investment professionals or operators who have a successful track record of managing and exiting investments. We look to our independent sponsor partners to lead all phases of the investment process, including post-close strategy implementation and interaction with management.
Holistic Financing Solution
Our fund structure maximizes flexibility. Along with our subordinated debt, we can provide sizable equity co-investments. We can offer a one-stop solution by soliciting senior financing proposals from our Bank LP network who invest in our funds.
Business Owners and Management
We invest debt and equity in non-control transactions, directly partnering with business owners and/or management teams seeking wealth diversification, a recapitalization, or growth capital.
Non-Control, less Dilutive Capital
