Emerald Crest Capital Partners is a boutique lender that fills a void in today's marketplace by serving the needs of small to mid-sized companies. We have traditionally assisted our borrowers address their capital needs via creative credit solutions. While we principally focus on originating senior secured loans to cash flowing companies, we remain able to make asset backed loans in certain circumstances. Specifically, we make cash flow/enterprise value term loans and remain able to make asset backed loans in circumstances involving unconventional asset collateral. Our firm is fundamantally differentiated by our ability to provide flexible credit solutions to our borrowers. We seek to partner with borrowers to help navigate growth and acquisition opportunities.
Our mission is to assist management teams in meeting their financing objectives by providing access to critical capital for expansion, acquisitions, or other working capital needs. In addition to strong transactional experience, our team brings experiece from across the capital structure. Unlike many other financial firms, we understand the reality and challenges associated with the day-to-day management of a company and the need for flexible credit products.
Fund & Investment Size
Emerald Crest Capital is a committed fund that was formed in 2009 with a mix of institutional and high net worth limited partners. Our typical loan size ranges between $5 million and $15 million, though with co-investment from certain investors and strategic partners we have the ability to make loans as large as $35 million. Our loans typically mature in three to five years and are at the top of the capital structure. The firm's investment officers bring a wide range of experience to the firm including years spent with commercial lenders, asset backed lenders, private equity firms, investment banking firms, venture firms, and an international law firm. This array of experience gives our firm an ability to structure innovative solutions to a borrower's idiosyncratic needs.
We are a generalist firm that has closed successful transactions in a wide variety of industries. Our debt offerings are best suited for industries and companies with stable and reliable cash flow, significant enterprise value and barriers to competition. However, we remain able to make asset backed loans, including circumstances where a borrower possesses unconventional assets that preclude traditional lenders from making the loan.
