“We sourced and closed this deal in the heart of the pandemic. Many lenders were hesitant to invest, but Merion recognized the opportunity and provided capital and active participation that was critical to closing the transaction.”
“When an opportunity to join forces with Digistor, a leading manufacturer of solid-state drives and secure storage solutions, arose, CDSG sought a financing partner. Merion quickly understood the benefits and transformative nature of this corporate combination and quickly provided a complete financing solution in conjunction with one of their senior lending partners. I appreciate their diligence and support and look forward to working with the Merion team as we implement our growth plans.”
“From the outset, Merion understood our strategy and the opportunity for growth in the clinical optometry vertical. Closing complex transactions can be challenging, especially during a pandemic. Merion didn’t miss a beat and was a supportive partner throughout the whole process. As such, they were actively involved as a sounding board as we instituted operational changes and tapped their network to provide unique capital structure solutions, both on the debt and equity side of our transaction. Merion went above and beyond the call to action, perhaps a common trait for a partner, but certainly much less common in our interactions with lenders. We look forward to working with the Merion team on many more deals and are grateful for their continued support.”
“Merion worked through a very complicated situation, recognized value in the company, and quickly provided a solution which allowed us to move to closing quickly and efficiently. They understood the potential and provided a capital structure that allowed flexibility for the company to achieve its goals.”
“Merion’s persistence, responsiveness, and solution-orientation made them a perfect financing partner for BVP in its purchase of Magma. Not only did Merion share our vision for growth, but also their team has since proved to be an invaluable partner as we manage unprecedented growth amidst the challenging pandemic environment. We continue to value Merion’s insights and contributions as we execute on our growth plan.”
Merion was a great partner for Olympia. From the start of the investment all the way through to a successful exit, they were supportive of our management team and clear in their goal of value creation over the long term. The Merion team played an important role in driving growth and positioning Olympia for success.
Merion is responsive and decisive. With Merion’s assistance, we closed two add on acquisitions for our platform in a very timely and seamless fashion. Their speed, professionalism and willingness to pose solutions helped our company to grow both organically and through consolidation of competitors and product lines.
When AFS started on its strategy to grow through acquisitions, the company had no track record of historical earnings, but based on the management vision, Merion was the only one that understood the value proposition and provided the capital needed at a critical time for AFS. Their support of management in continuing the growth strategy by providing additional funding and counsel when needed, resulted in AFS being one of the most successful software company roll-ups of the last decade and Merion was a pivotal part of that success.
