InvestmentBank.com, a provider of M&A advisory solutions for middle-market businesses in the United States, announced Monday (April 10) a new service geared toward institutional debt lenders looking to place funds in acquisition deals.
According to a press release, InvestmentBank.com said the new service, which includes direct access to the company’s book of some 2,600 institutional debt and equity lenders, also includes direct outreach from investment bankers. The product is slated to be released for existing business owners looking to grow by acquisition, independent sponsors with some or all of their own equity as well as private equity groups looking for additional sources for acquisition financing, it said in the release.
“There is still a gap in the market,” says Nate Nead, principal at InvestmentBank.com. “There is a void between where small business administration (SBA) loans provide financing for lower middle-market businesses and where the need exists,” he says. “The way to fill that void is to know the right players in the market that will provide debt and equity lending for businesses outside of the purview of the SBA.”
InvestmentBank.com said the company has helped firms in the past in providing capital for acquisitions and organic growth.
“When it comes to raising debt or equity for acquisition or other growth capital, we are not on our first rodeo,” Nead said in the same press release. “But it is not an area where we have actively sought capital clients. We are excited and optimistic for the future prospects of this new service offering,” Nead concluded.
InvestmentBank.com is focused on providing capital advisory services for businesses from $5 million to $100 million in enterprise value.
