Where The Banks Aren’t, We Are. The managers of Stonegate Capital – seasoned veterans of larger financial institutions – are able to quickly and efficiently structure credit solutions throughout the capital stack. Our particular focus is on providing collateral-backed debt to small and medium sized businesses whose needs are increasingly not being met by traditional financing sources. Our direct and indirect lending strategies are designed to produce risk-appropriate returns generated primarily from senior secured, top of the capital structure positions in independent, private equity-backed and venture-backed companies.
At Stonegate Capital, we pride ourselves on being nimble and adaptive. As market conditions change, we can continue to serve borrowers throughout the credit cycle—offering products that fit their needs, in positions that are mutually beneficial. We have the flexibility and creativity to structure deals that are customized for a company’s unique financial situation. Below are some of the primary products and industries in which we invest:
Products: 1st Lien Asset-backed Revolvers Stretch Loans Secured Term Loans Second Lien DIP Loans Buyout Loans Growth Capital Venture Debt / SAAS / Recurring Revenue Loans Re-discount Lending
Industries: Manufacturing Consumer Brands Media Retail Business Services Distribution Software and Technology Real Estate
FAST, EFFICIENT, SUPPORTIVE CAPITAL
There are no layers of bureaucracy for the borrower to wade through for a credit decision and funding. We have a concentrated team of seasoned credit professionals who, based on experience, can quickly assess situations, structure transactions and compress the process of diligence and documentation. Our investment professionals are also portfolio managers, so borrowers' primary point of contact remains the same throughout the life of the loan.
During the entire process, from our initial conversations with a prospect to the funding of a loan, we work hand-in-hand with customers to ensure we are customizing our financing solutions. Our diligence work – qualitative business review, collateral audits, appraisals, legal documentation – is typically completed within a streamlined six-week timeframe. We lead every process with open and consistent communication so that everyone has updated information in real-time as we proceed towards the closing.
Once a loan is closed and funded, Stonegate maintains close relationships with our customers. We view each loan as a partnership. We have experienced the highs and lows of many businesses and understand how to work with borrowers to help them manage through these cycles. We make sure reporting requirements are thorough yet nimble, and that we are accurately understanding the daily, weekly, or monthly funding requirements of our borrowers. Our primary goal is to enable our customers to focus on what’s most important – having the flexibility and freedom to run their business successfully on a day-to-day basis.
