Recapitalization

 

Situation / Result
The Company partnered with DCA Capital to provide it with funds to repurchase the interest of a former strategic partner who had previously invested in the Company. DCA Capital was able to introduce another investor to the opportunity and together they were able to finance the recapitalization. In addition to buying back the large investors’ shares, DCA also provided partial liquidity to members of the management team. After several years of consistently increasing revenues and cash flow, DCA Capital sold its interest in the Company to another, larger private equity fund – a second recapitalization of the Company - leaving management in place while providing them with additional liquidity in each transaction.
