We create a tailored solution for each partnership instead of offering a particular/rigid/off-the-shelf product. This can mean either a first lien, a unitranche, or a second lien loan.
ACP Credit is the senior strategy of ACP Group formerly known as Mezzanine Management.
We pioneered mezzanine finance in Central Europe in 2000 and have since evolved to become a one-stop-shop for growth capital to mid-market businesses. We have successfully invested above to EUR 800m across four funds, helping 57 businesses grow – organically and through acquisition; domestically and abroad.
We started out providing mezzanine finance alongside financial sponsors. The region has grown a lot since then, and so have we: today we provide all types of funding depending on what best suits a particular business at a specific point in its development. Nowadays half of our deals are done alongside a financial sponsor; the other half sees us providing a single-institution solution to growing businesses.
While a lot has changed in 20 years, a lot has stayed the same – namely our relationship-based approach. Being first-to-market means we have the experience to truly understand the markets which has made us a ‘preferred partner’ for regional financial sponsors and advisory firms.
The company was founded by longstanding Central Europe investor Franz Hoerhager and is sponsored by industry veteran Rory Brooks , co-founder of London based MML Capital Partners.
