|As an investor of both mezzanine debt and equity, Merit is both a lender and a shareholder. We are open to both minority and majority investments.
Merit considers many types of investment partnerships. We are very comfortable “sponsoring” transactions, handling the entire investment process ourselves and supplying all necessary capital. In addition, we often work with small or fundless sponsors by providing equity capital along with mezzanine financing to support larger investments that these groups may not be able to complete alone. Finally, we partner with large private equity firms on more traditional mezzanine investments. Regardless of the arrangement, however, our investment philosophy and process remain the same.
