ALARIAN TARGETS INVESTMENTS SUITABLE FOR LEVERAGED CAPITAL STRUCTURE

Alarian targets privately held companies in the United States, east of the Mississippi that have annual revenue in excess of $10 million and EBIT margins greater than 10 percent. We like companies that have or have the potential of gross margins ≥ 30% of sales and that can sustain a leveraged capital structure.

However, we realize that privately held companies in the lower end of the middle market operated by entrepreneurs need to be valued on an adjusted basis.

Alarian provides or arranges capital in the form of common stock, preferred stock, and subordinated debt with warrants or granted equity. We are experienced in providing capital to business services.

We like to work with owners seeking retirement and liquidity, owner-managers wanting some liquidity and capital for expansion and Manager-led acquisitions of public or private companies in the middle market. We are comfortable with Special Situations including pre-packaged bankruptcy.
