ABOUT SIG-i CAPITAL
TYPICAL DEAL TERMS

SIG-i partners up with a private equity sponsor that seeks to acquire a target company to provide junior debt (mezzanine) financing. Most of such deals come to SIG-i from its network of private equity sponsors.
SIG-i provides capital (typically mezzanine debt or preferred equity) to an operating company enabling it to buy out a large minority investor. Most of such cases come to SIG-i from its network of corporate finance advisors and M&A boutiques. SIG-i gains extra sourcing edge by proactively proposing its solutions in situations where the focus of the advisor is to find a buyer for a minority equity stake.
Pre-IPO investments/ growth capital/ bridge financing
The firm engages with companies that temporarily require extra leverage by being a “patient capital enabler”. Most of such cases come to SIG-i from its network of corporate finance advisors and M&A boutiques.
