Patria has good relations with many local, regional and international providers of investment capital, private equity or mezzanine and of course, the providers of acquisition financing (banks).

The equity providers differ by their focus according to the phase of company development: seed, development or buy-out. While seed capital is a form suitable for fast developing companies in the very early stage of their development, the development or buy-out capital enables the shareholders to further grow their company by sharing the entrepreneurial risk with a financial partner.

In combination with investments in equity and bank loans is an appropriate form of mezzanine financing for such management buyouts of companies.

Mezzanine financing is a form of a junior debt, often with an ‘equity kicker’, i.e. possibility for the investor to convert part of its mezzanine exposure into equity.
