Collateral Loans: GB Credit Partners, the investment management affiliate of Gordon Brothers Group, strategically partners with senior lenders to provide companies with enhanced liquidity through the junior secured Tranche B loan product. GB Credit Partners has the benefit of an unmatched understanding of asset values and business operations—an understanding gained through the appraisal and sale of over $50 billion worth of assets in 2011. This enables us to extend beyond standard advance rates while assigning value to brands and other nontraditional assets against which lenders are often unwilling to finance. We provide all types of financing to meet these short- and long-term liquidity needs, including:
- Working capital
Cash Flow Enterprise Value Loans: We take a strategic partnership approach in providing enterprise value loans to companies in order to facilitate acquisitions, leveraged buyouts, recapitalizations and growth strategies. By capitalizing on Gordon Brothers Group’s sector-specific knowledge and 100-plus years of experience in understanding the underlying value of a business, we can structure enterprise value loans that meet a company’s liquidity needs and growth objectives. We target middle-market companies with brand equity, proven management, a strong market position and sustainable cash flow.
Special Situations Debt Financing: In some situations corporations often have difficult strategic challenges that are not always met by traditional lenders. We use our knowledge of various asset classes and industries to structure creative solutions for companies in some form of transition. Often, a "special situation" requires a lender with a sophisticated approach that can take the time to understand the company, the competitive landscape and financial structure, and related issues facing the company.
