Vision Capital launches Principal Finance July 2016

Vision Capital, the international investment group, today announces the launch of Vision Capital Principal Finance, complementing its existing equity investment activities in Europe and North America.

Vision Capital Principal Finance will provide private, flexible and cost-efficient financing for investment funds and portfolios of companies for a range of different purposes: to enable company growth initiatives, debt repayment, acquisitions and investor liquidity.  Transaction sizes are anticipated to range from €25-500 million through a variety of structures, including preferred equity and debt.

Julian Mash, Chief Executive of Vision Capital, said: "We are very excited by the level of interest we have received in our Principal Finance offer since we began talking to private equity firms in Europe and the US earlier this year about how it could help them.  Whether it is to support investment in portfolio companies, acquisitions or to provide liquidity to LPs, people have welcomed the opportunity to explore what cost-efficient, flexible financing can do for their portfolios and investors.

Vision Capital has a proud history of innovation, derived from its specialist experience and understanding of the dynamics of mid-sized private equity portfolio companies and funds, together with their managers and investors.  We have pioneered a number of different types of private equity transactions over the years, and are now adding the provision of private, flexible, cost-efficient financing to the active ownership of 18 portfolio companies with combined sales in excess of $3.5bn and over 20,000 employees around the world."
