“Prudential listened to us and our objectives. They've been able to help us come up with a strategy so over time we can get the money out that the founders need and the management team can continue to grow the Company and keep the culture intact.”
CEO, Dion's Pizza
The Full Story
Dion's first began working with us in 2014, when they were seeking capital to recapitalize their Company.
As Dion's grew over the years the founders owned about 85 percent of the organization and the management team owned the remaining 15 percent. The founders were looking to take a step back from the day to day operations of the business and realize some liquidity from their ownership. The Company's investment banker had come to know us through a previous transaction and introduced us to Dion's, thinking our ability to do a minority recapitalization would be a good fit.
We were able to finance a minority recapitalization through a one-stop financing transaction. We provided a revolver, senior debt, subordinated debt, and preferred equity. Our solution was able to provide the two founders with substantial liquidity and they were still able to retain control of the business.
