Monroe Capital Expands Senior Term Loan Financing Platform
Chicago, IL, October 24, 2006
Monroe Capital LLC is pleased to announce the expansion of its Senior Term Loan business platform to partner with specialty finance companies and financial institutions serving middle-market borrowers and private equity firms. Monroe has been targeting middle-market senior secured leverage loans and will also invest in large leveraged loans, second lien loans and last-out participations of senior debt. Monroe Capital established this platform as a non-competitive “buy and hold” lender providing credit decisions in a prompt, efficient and predictable manner.
“We believe we can be and have been a real value-added, non-competitive partner for banks and non-bank lenders for small leveraged loan transactions on a new issue basis as well as for post-closing, secondary market purchases,” said Theodore L. Koenig, President & CEO of Monroe. “Our goal is to become a preferred business partner for co-lending situations that otherwise may be too small for the traditional syndicated loan market.” Monroe has already completed and closed over 50 of these types of co-lending transactions. Koenig added, “The reception that we have received has been tremendous. We intend to continue to earn the respect and trust of our lending partners on a day-to-day, transaction by transaction basis.”
Monroe Capital is a specialty finance company and one of the most active providers of junior secured and senior debt to middle-market companies in amounts typically ranging from $3 million to $50 million. Monroe is committed to being a value-added and user-friendly partner to owners, senior management, transaction sponsors and other lenders. Investment types include senior and junior secured debt as well as bridge loans, flexible acquisition facilities, mezzanine or last-out second loans that stretch a company’s debt capacity, acquisitions of distressed debt, and equity co-investments. Monroe Capital prides itself on its flexible investment approach and its ability to close and fund transactions quickly. To learn more about Monroe Capital, visit www.monroecap.com.
