Flexible Growth Capital for the Lower Middle Market
Established in 2009, Breakwater Management provides growth capital to owner-operators and sponsor-backed businesses in the lower middle market. The Breakwater team has successfully financed, owned, and operated private companies across various industries and through multiple economic cycles. Senior leadership combines an entrepreneurial approach with institutional discipline and is guided by the core business principles of integrity, partnership, and growth. The firm has two complementary strategies focusing on companies in the U.S. and Canada with $5.0 to $25.0 million of EBITDA:
Through our Structured Financing strategy, we provide senior loans complemented with non-control structured preferred or common equity to both business owners and financial sponsors. Our effort is differentiated through our broader product suite of both debt and equity, our ability to due diligence unique growth opportunities and complex situations, and rapid decision-making. Breakwater’s institutional fund vehicles for this strategy offer a combination of current cash yield and capital gain opportunities.
Through our Private Equity strategy, we acquire majority equity interests in growing companies in partnership with current ownership and management. Our strategy is to accelerate value creation through capital resources, operating expertise, and strategic guidance, with the goal of increasing enterprise value through both business expansion and by broadening the range of exit options for a future liquidity event.
Breakwater currently manages four funds and several special-purpose vehicles on behalf of institutional and individual investors.
