Private Equity has its advantages when structured correctly at the appropriate time, maintaining or achieving a commercially acceptable ratio. Equity financing is ideal for companies that are unable to obtain sufficient funds through retained earnings or currently have limited access to the debt capital markets.
Unlike a loan, the company is not obligated to repay the principal and it is in the investor's own interest to enhance and accelerate the company's growth providing management with an additional in-house source of advisory and expertise.
SalemBridge is able to provide access to capital sources by leveraging our relationship and database of various private equity groups, financial sponsors and venture capital funds as well as other institutional investors.
