SouthBridge is established with the aim of assisting Greek growing Lower-Mid market companies to transform into tomorrow’s key market players.
Our Investment Profile
We look for companies with a solid track record and a robust strategic plan for expansion, committed and experienced entrepreneurs with strong business acumen.
We provide capital to finance organic growth, expansion in new products/markets, and/or acquisition of complementary businesses that can provide an additional opportunity to improve competitiveness.
Our Structuring Flexibility
We use hybrid financing instruments, such as convertible loans with equity features or subordinated debt with warrants or synthetic mezzanine structures. Such financing structures increase the long-term capital base of an investee company without significantly diluting shareholders’ control.
If syndication is required this is typically to our limited partners.
Our Partnership Culture
We are ‘take and hold’ investors with the intention to hold our investments to maturity, investing in the business and its management team for the medium to long term. By investing for longer periods and by having board representation, a deeper mutual understanding is generated between SouthBridge, management and shareholders.
Our Added Value
Practical assistance to investee companies includes among others, access to an extensive network of relationships: clients, suppliers, professional advisors, financial institutions and potential business partners.
