Audax Private Debt is a leading direct lender in the middle market. We have provided over $15 billion of senior, unitranche, and junior debt solutions to more than 180 middle market private equity firms over the last 19 years, establishing a reputation as an experienced, reliable, and flexible lender.
Since 2000, Audax Mezzanine has partnered with leading private equity firms to help finance their purchase of middle market companies. We provide junior capital, typically in the form of subordinated debt and second lien loans, in addition to a co-investment in equity securities. We source opportunities directly from financial sponsors throughout North America, supporting leveraged buyouts, acquisition financings, and debt recapitalizations. We take a partnership approach to new financings and portfolio decisions and have an established track record of helping private equity firms acquire and grow businesses.
Audax Mezzanine seeks a diverse portfolio of junior debt securities where we aim to be the sole or lead investor but will participate with other investors in certain circumstances. We invest across a broad range of industries and seek companies with revenue and cash flow stability, defensible market positions, experienced management teams, and strong equity sponsorship.
