St. Cloud provides flexible financing solutions to lower middle market companies including entrepreneur-owned companies, private equity sponsor owned companies, closely held private companies, and micro-cap publicly owned companies.
Our typical investment is $5 million to $15 million in size, and focused on lower middle market companies that typically fall “below the radar screen” of larger private equity firms and the broader capital markets.
We seek opportunities with solid management teams, proven services or products and substantial growth potential. We welcome investment referrals from investment banking firms, brokers, lenders, attorneys, accountants, consultants, business executives and other investors. All information provided to us is treated confidentially.
We support a wide array of transaction types, including, without limitation, expansion and growth capital, recapitalizations, refinancings, management buyouts and change of control transactions, and strategic acquisitions to support a company’s growth.
We invest in a wide range of industries, including areas where we have demonstrated experience, such as manufacturing, distribution, retail, business services, logistics, consumer, healthcare and financial services. Our prior experience across a broad range of industries helps us articulate a thoughtful approach toward due diligence and strategic planning.
