Raising Capital

With a sound strategy and a dedicated commitment to the process, we help companies take advantage of business opportunities by raising capital on favorable terms.

Focus Strategies raises equity or debt to capitalize or re-capitalize middle market companies. The types of capital could include common or preferred equity, senior debt, mezzanine/subordinated debt, or a unitranche facility, depending on the situation and needs of the Company.

Whether generating liquidity, executing a growth plan, or negotiating a buyout, each company faces unique challenges. The senior leadership at Focus Strategies has walked in your shoes as both advisors and organizational leaders. We know the magnitude of the decisions you are facing.

Raising capital requires significant preparation, thorough market knowledge, and an extensive network. But we understand that serving a client’s needs requires more. It requires finesse, creativity, and insight only obtained through experience from both the banking and the operational sides of the table.
