We create a tailored solution for each partnership instead of offering a particular/rigid/off-the-shelf product. This can mean either a first lien, a unitranche, or a second lien loan.
Accession Capital Partners (ACP), formerly known as Mezzanine Management, pioneered private debt in Central Europe in 2000 and have since evolved to become a one-stop-shop for growth capital to mid-market businesses. We have successfully invested close to EUR 770m across four funds, helping 56 businesses grow – organically and through acquisition; domestically and abroad.
We started out providing mezzanine finance alongside financial sponsors. The region has grown a lot since then, and so have we: today we provide all types of funding depending on what best suits a particular business at a specific point in its development. Nowadays half of our deals are done alongside a financial sponsor; the other half sees us providing a single-institution solution to growing businesses.
While a lot has changed in 20 years, a lot has stayed the same – namely our relationship-based approach. Being first-to-market means we have the experience to truly understand the markets which has made us a ‘preferred partner’ for regional financial sponsors and advisory firms.
The company was founded by longstanding Central Europe investor Franz Hoerhager and is sponsored by industry veteran Rory Brooks , co-founder of London based MML Capital Partners, and CQ Investment Group, a leading European multi-strategy asset manager.
