Founded in 2003, Merion Investment Partners is investing from its fourth fund. Managing over $550MM of capital, Merion is a licensed SBIC and a leading provider of mezzanine and equity capital to the lower middle market. Merion invests mezzanine debt and equity in companies to support organic growth, acquisitions, buyouts and internal transfer of ownership. The fund will invest alongside private equity sponsors as well as directly with entrepreneurs. We look for companies that have strong growth potential, proven management teams, a strategic competitive advantage and/or are operating in sectors of the economy that are poised to exhibit growth.
We have found that the value for all parties involved in the deal can be enhanced by utilizing the combined experience, the strategic vision and the deep network of the Merion team. When Merion makes an investment, we are committing not only our capital but also the collective resources of the firm and its partners. Merion has a long history of providing creative structural solutions in private transactions in the lower middle market. Our approach has resulted in a portfolio with average revenue growth of over 115% during Merion’s partnership and reflects our commitment to be more than just debt.
