Finding The Right Private Equity Partner

There are nearly 2,000 institutional providers of private equity capital in North America. Similar to mezzanine debt, private equity firms have predefined investment criteria in terms of yield, industry preference and investment security type. Equity security types range from preferred to straight common stock, including synthetic variations of the two. Our professionals understand the advantages and disadvantages of hard equity financing.

BDO Capital has long standing relationships with many private equity firms and is conversant with the nuances of these sponsors and corresponding capital structures.
