Corporate Finance

Corporate Finance

Family and closely held businesses are often in need of funds for strategic growth plans, shareholder liquidity, management buyouts, succession planning, diversification, recapitalizations or dividends.

We make it our business to know the capabilities and investment preferences of “family-friendly” capital providers in the market and to know which firms are providing the most attractive proposals – ranging from senior debt providers to common equity investors.

  • Debt Financing
  • Equity Financing
  • Patient Capital Financing

Debt Financing

From low cost asset-based loans and cash flow-oriented senior bank debt facilities, to mezzanine or subordinated debt, we match appropriate and like-minded debt financing sources to meet our clients’ longer-term goals and objectives.

Equity Financing

The equity provider market has become highly differentiated by industry, size of investment, type of capital and holding period. We can locate right-sized equity capital for almost any client, with uses ranging from growth capital for the business, liquidity for shareholders, family or shareholder buyouts, to deleveraging or restructuring.

We’re arranged and negotiated a wide array of equity capital types, from longer term, preferred stock and common stock equity investments to mezzanine financings.

Patient Capital Financing

Belden Hill Partners specializes in longer term, more “patient” sources of business and shareholder liquidity capital. Through our long history of serving family businesses, we maintain regular contact with unique, family office investors, specialized equity investment groups, and individual investors.

These non-traditional sources of capital are often the best investors/partners for later-stage family and closely held businesses where the owners desire growth capital and some liquidity, as well as a flexible structure to retain meaningful equity ownership and control.
