We target established, cash flow positive businesses in defensible market niches, typically with EBITDA ranging from $1mm - $5mm. In select circumstances, we also partner with experienced management teams in distressed and start-up situations. Experienced entrepreneurs ourselves, Cascade brings a diverse set of finance and back-office support services to each investment, allowing management to be singularly focused on operating the business.
We view each investment as a partnership with management. We seek to align ourselves both strategically and financially with skilled operators; we do not get involved with the day-to-day operations of the business, instead providing guidance where impactful from a Board level and assisting in optimizing the capital structure of the business to ensure sufficient working and growth capital. We can also assist in providing, centralized back-office accounting and treasury functions for the Company.
We are flexible in our investment approach, structuring capital solutions that best meet the needs of owners and managers, while also providing optimal risk-adjusted returns for our investors. Our investments can take a variety of forms, including; asset based lending structures, unitranche debt, second lien debt, mezzanine debt, preferred equity and common equity. With a focus on optimizing the company’s overall cost of capital, we will frequently utilize one or more of the above funding structures, providing a turnkey financing solution.
