Spring Capital Partners was established in 1999 to provide mezzanine capital to growing small and medium sized businesses. With over $350 million invested or under management, we are currently investing out of our third fund. We make investments primarily in the form of subordinated debt with equity features in the range of $2 million to $12 million per investment. For growing companies that seek a source of long term capital or have reached the limits of their bank borrowing capacities, mezzanine capital represents an attractive alternative to additional equity. When structured properly, mezzanine financing is regarded as equity by senior lenders, but minimizes equity dilution for the shareholders.
Collectively, the principals of Spring Capital have decades of experience in venture capital, commercial banking, investment banking, operating management and entrepreneurship. Our portfolio companies represent investments across a broad range of industries, including technology services and software, business services, consumer products, manufacturing and health care services. We have a flexible investment mandate which allows us to tailor our investment to fit the need of our portfolio company. We believe that our expertise, as well as our capital, can help companies achieve their growth objectives.
