Kayne Partners makes non-control investments in high-growth companies. These companies have reached an inflection point in their lifecycle, where an infusion of capital and the right partner can make a meaningful difference in helping them achieve their growth plans. We understand the unique challenges entrepreneurs face in scaling their businesses and have an appreciation for nimble and innovative founders that blaze their own trail. We have developed a track record in partnering with driven entrepreneurs to provide the capital, relationships, business development support, best practices, and strategic advice that a large multi-billion institution can provide.
Kayne Partners seeks to build substantial relationships with management teams over time, placing high value in proper fit rather than rushing into a deal. We are flexible in how we structure our capital and mindful of what makes the most sense for the business. Our investments have included structures such as debt with warrants, preferred equity, common equity, and hybrids of these structures. Our capital is most often used to finance working capital, expand geographically, develop infrastructure, expand sales and marketing efforts, invest in research and development or fund add-on acquisitions.
