Overview

Since its founding in 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 unitranche loans, in addition to a co-investment in equity securities. We source opportunities directly from financial sponsors throughout North America, investing in leveraged buyouts, acquisition financings and debt recapitalizations. We differentiate ourselves by taking a long-term view as it relates to new financings and portfolio decisions. Audax Mezzanine has 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.

Audax Mezzanine has raised over $3.3 billion from institutional investors globally.

We are based in New York City and have 19 investment professionals. Our leadership team has been in place since inception and our managing directors average 23 years of investment experience.
