Fifth Third Bank continues to provide capital solutions to private equity groups when other sources for private equity lending have diminished.

Cash Flow Lending

For acquiring a business with a minimum of $5 million in EBITDA. To understand the true value of the acquisition, we pursue a high degree of due diligence including validating the investment thesis, a quality of earnings report, industry specific analysis and market comparisons.

Enterprise Lending

For acquiring a company with a minimum of $12 million in EBITDA. Based primarily on the due diligence of private equity sponsors and our market comparisons of similar businesses, our enterprise lending solution is rooted in our relationship with our private equity partner.

Mezzanine Finance

If your total capital needs exceed our private equity lending terms, consider our Mezzanine Finance solutions. Lower your execution risk by simplifying negotiations and documentation with a single lending partner and a strong financial relationship.
