Oftentimes, companies reach a critical stage in their lifecycle when further growth or strategic objectives require additional capital. The challenge for middle-market companies is that their needs have outgrown the typical sources of capital available to smaller businesses. Yet, their private ownership and medium-size also precludes them from accessing the debt and equity options available to large and publicly-traded corporations. An investment bank such as DGP Capital can help clients in the lower to lower-middle market segment access private capital, including debt, equity and structured capital solutions.
Capital Advisory Expertise
DGP Capital is a leading Capital Advisory firm for small to medium-sized businesses in manufacturing, industrial and energy sectors. We have deep experience in private capital placement and in corporate finance. Our founders have led transactions across many different structures and sizes, from $1 million all the way to $3 billion in transaction size; we utilize those experiences to provide smaller companies (typically with revenues as low as $10 million) with customized cost-efficient capital solutions.
Work with an Investment Bank with Domain Expertise in your Sector, and Focused on Your Size
DGP Capital understands that capital objectives vary according to the industry sector, the financial situation of the company, and the ownership team’s objectives. Every company is unique, and as such, we do a deep dive in assessing your capital situation, thereby aligning the needs of your company with efficient sources of capital.
With deep domain expertise across the energy, manufacturing and industrials space, DGP Capital understands that there is no “one size fits all” capital solution. Unlike other capital advisors, we don’t believe that effective capital advisory work is industry agnostic. As such, DGP’s focus on our specific sectors of coverage ultimately yields our clients more competitive transaction terms and a lower cost of capital.

Traditional Banks – Not the Only Source for Capital
As certain industries evolve, traditional banks may not be the optimal capital provider for a business. A sector may be out of favor, a company’s existing bank may be pulling back their exposure to certain industries, or a traditional bank may have outgrown their client. It’s not uncommon for traditional banks to limit, or in some instances rescind, credit to their existing customers. In many situations, a non-traditional lender or capital provider is the best option available to a business.
DGP Capital has the relationships with various alternative sources for recapitalization: private debt and equity investors, subordinated or mezzanine financing, working capital financing or off-balance sheet financing providers. Rather than limit the financing search to just your familiar sources, obtain favorable terms with competitive offers through our connections to traditional and non-traditional capital providers:
- Private Equity financing
- Cash flow Loans
- Asset Based Loans
- Refinancing / Recapitalization
- Term A/B Loans
- Asset-Based and Real Estate Financing
- Working Capital and Operating Leases
- Mezzanine / Subordinated or Junior Debt
DGP Capital’s insightful review of your company, coupled with our industry knowledge, will identify the best process and sources for raising debt or equity financing, while minimizing disruptive or unintended impacts.
