We specialize in:

  • Growth & Acquisition Finance
  • Corporate and Fund Recapitalization
  • Management buyouts

Debt – Mezzanine, Revolvers and Senior

Large, well-known money center banks have limited capabilities with mid-market companies leaving a gap now filled by many, smaller specialty lenders who are active but unknown by most companies. Sutter has a broad reach into smaller specialty lenders which are active but unknown by most companies. The cost of capital in this sector is significantly more favorable than equity capital so worth considering when structuring your capital raise or restructure..
