Mezzanine Capital

Mezzanine capital is suited for companies with equity needs but do not wish to sell company shares.

Mezzanine capital providers may benefit from an increase of the company value or receive a portion of revenues as equivalent for the assumption of certain risks.  While mezzanine capital is a limited long-term financing, no voting rights are awarded to mezzanine capital providers.

Mezzanine capital is regularly used in connection with expansion financings, internationalisations and bridge financings for Pre-IPOs.  Also, mezzanine capital is used as co-financing for programs and buy-outs (LBOs, MBOs) and is suitable for employees participation programs.

Examples for mezzanine capital are participating  certificates, corporate bonds, silent participations and shareholder loans.

Mezzanine is the ideal instrument for structuring customized funding solutions.  Based on many years of experience, Babcock & Brown helps identifying the ideal financial instrument and provides support and advice in respect of structuring successful mezzanine capital solutions for our clients. Furthermore we will support the process, from the search for investors through to closing.
