Stonegate Capital Holdings, LLC, is a diversified private credit investment firm with a unique approach to providing financing solutions to established lower middle market businesses and emerging brands, their sponsors and supporters. At a time when traditional sources of debt capital are limiting their exposure due to risks, increasing costs, and regulations, Stonegate Capital has emerged as a stable source of liquidity for borrowers across industries and economic cycles.
WE DIVE DEEP
Where institutional banking firms seek to lend to borrowers that fit within formulated, static guardrails — dictated by statistics and algorithms — Stonegate Capital delves deeper to recognize value that others don’t see. At our core, Stonegate Capital is a direct lender of senior secured, collateralized debt. Through our investment-minded, analytical approach, we’re able to uncover opportunities and find creative ways to collateralize obligations that would normally not be considered by other lenders — such as inventory, stream of forward revenue, equipment, real estate, and intellectual property. By diving deep, we often uncover hidden value where others only see risk.
WE VIEW BUSINESSES FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE
Stonegate Capital has a preeminent team of credit veterans who have the energy and ingenuity to offer strategic financing solutions that respond to the intricate ebbs and flows of business. One business at a time. Results are delivered through our team’s hands-on, opportunity-minded approach. At Stonegate, we are students of business nuance. That’s how we unearth the insights, understandings and financial realities that help us provide productive and supportive capital throughout the business cycle when borrowers need it most.
OUR STRUCTURE ALLOWS US TO BE MORE FLEXIBLE
Capitalized by private investors, we are not bound by banking regulations that limit how much, to whom, and in what form we can lend. Instead, our approach to credit decisions is based on our borrowers’ needs and merits in totality and our ability to structure debt solutions that are appropriate, fair and agreeable for both sides of the partnership. As a result, we can often provide higher credit with more flexible structuring than our banking counterparts.
