Farragut seeks to fill a gap in the capital structures of lower middle market companies by providing growth capital and acquisition financing that is otherwise unavailable from traditional lending sources.
We target businesses with established reputations and products, viable plans for growth, and demonstrated profitability and invest senior subordinated debt and/or preferred equity to help them achieve their objectives. Unlike traditional private equity groups, we do not look to take control positions in the companies in our portfolio. Instead, we seek to partner with owners and management as minority shareholders to create lasting value that endures long after the time of our involvement.
We are attuned to the need for flexible financing and will structure each investment to meet the requirements of our partners, as well as our own return objectives. We have engaged in financings for growth, acquisitions, recapitalizations, and management and leveraged buyouts and will work with owners to tailor our investments to their needs.
