West Palm Beach, FL., March 2014 – Comvest Partners through its debt fund, Comvest Capital II L.P., acted as Agent on an upsized $75 million term loan for Merchant Cash and Capital, LLC (“MCC”), one of the nation’s leading “merchant cash advance” funding companies. Comvest made an initial investment in MCC in September 2011.
“Like the businesses we finance, we need resources to develop more programs and services for our customers, and that is exactly what this new financing will allow us to do,” said MCC Chief Executive Officer Stephen Sheinbaum. “Our new term loan gives us the capital needed to invest in technology and product development, and catapult the growth of MCC from the current levels of funding $20 million per month to more than double that over the course of the next year.”
2013 was a watershed year for MCC, as it successfully launched its ASAP technology which streamlines and automates the approval-to-funding process for merchants and partners alike. In addition to technology innovations and product expansion, MCC has also added to the depth of its senior management team with the addition of Jeffrey Beckwith, Chief Financial Officer.
“MCC has a team and set of business processes that are unparalleled in our industry, we are excited to take MCC to the next level,” said Jeff Beckwith, Chief Financial Officer of MCC.
“We have enjoyed watching the product growth and continuous improvement of MCC over the last several years,” said Greg Reynolds, Managing Director at Comvest. “We are confident that MCC is well-positioned for the future and are delighted to increase our capital commitment and bring Crystal Financial and Medley Capital into the new term loan.”
