High-growth company shareholders sought liquidity, growth capital and buy-side advisory without dilution

Objectives:

Bridgepoint was selected by our high growth technology consulting client as its exclusive financing arranger, investment bank and strategic advisor on its debt recapitalization. The founding shareholders had all their personal net worth tied up in the business and desired to de-risk prior to entering the next phase of growth. Further, the Company was seeking a financial partner to provide additional growth capital to fund acquisitions, open offices and other capital expenditures. 

Results:

Bridgepoint ran a professional and efficient capital raising process leveraging our deep debt capital markets expertise and funder connectivity. The Company was able to receive acquisition guidance from Bridgepoint in addition to acquisition financing from the financing partner. Further, the financing partner provided liquidity for shareholders without any equity dilution. Finally, a delayed draw term loan was committed by the funder to the Company for future liquidity or growth needs. Bridgepoint also secured a larger and more flexible line of credit with a global money center bank that will further allow the Company to scale quickly. Bridgepoint is actively advising the Company on a cross-border, buyside engagement to deploy the growth capital.
