Leeds Novamark Capital, LLC (“Leeds Novamark”) is a joint venture between Leeds Equity Partners, LLC and three former investment professionals from Allied Capital, formed to manage multiple debt and structured equity investment funds. Leeds Novamark will make opportunistic investments across the capital structure in high-quality, lower middle market companies. Generally, investments will be in companies with less than $20 million of EBITDA. Investment types will be predominantly mezzanine debt, but will also include senior loans, unitranche debt, and both majority/minority equity positions. Mezzanine debt will also include either warrants or equity co-investment.
Leeds Equity and the investment professionals have an outstanding, long-term track record generated via investments in senior loans, subordinated notes, preferred equity and common equity (both control and minority) totaling over $2.0 billion invested across the capital structure in over 60 transactions.
The foundation of Leeds Novamark is based on a shared culture that targets investments in industries with growing end-market demand and companies with the demonstrated ability to generate recurring revenue, significant free cash flow and high returns on invested capital. This investment focus almost always includes companies with defensible market positions in a domestic economy characterized by increasing global competition. In order to compete in this international economy, companies are placing an increasing importance on innovation, a skilled workforce, and ongoing education and training to drive customer value and, ultimately, superior economic outcomes. Leeds Novamark's historical investments have been heavily weighted in the following industries:
- Knowledge Industries (education, training and information and business services);
- Government services;
- Healthcare services;
- Financial and insurance services;
- Consumer products and services;
- Niche manufacturing; and
- Diversified products and services.
