Balance Point Capital invests mezzanine debt and equity capital in middle-market companies.

We take a long term, partnership approach to investing and are committed to building lasting relationships. Balance Point Capital and its predecessor funds have made over 50 investments in middle-market companies throughout the United States. Our current fund represents the firm’s fourth investment vehicle.

Investment Approach

We take a long-term, partnership approach to investing. Experience has taught us that building better businesses takes time and that having financially aligned, like-minded partners is a critical component of success. Therefore, in addition to spending time assessing a business model’s merits and sustainability, we make sure to gain a full understanding of the strategic goals of each investment and the set of incentives in place to achieve success. ”Getting it right upfront,” is a large part of our investment process.

Our team’s extensive experience working with small and medium sized businesses allows us to quickly identify investments of interest. Once on board, we work to customize a capital structure to match the strategic goals of each company. Our flexible approach to structuring allows for the use of senior debt, mezzanine debt, preferred stock and equity securities, or any combination thereof.

DECISION MAKING

As an experienced middle market investor, Balance Point Capital is familiar with the challenges and opportunities companies face as they seek to create value.
