Trusted Partner for Growing Businesses

As a publicly traded company, since 1961 we have provided capital to support the growth of over 245 middle-market companies. On December 2, 2014 we announced plans to split CSWC into two separately traded public companies. One will be a diversified growth company consisting primarily of our portfolio companies, RectorSeal, Whitmore, and Jet-Lube. CSWC will remain a business development company with efforts redirected to a credit-oriented investing strategy. Click here for press release , investor presentation, and dial in replay.

As a result, our new investment activities are focused on either middle market lending opportunities, or supporting our diversified growth company businesses.

Middle Market Lending

Capital Southwest provides debt and equity capital in support of equity sponsor led acquisitions and in partnership with management to fund growth, acquisitions and partial liquidity. We invest in subordinated debt, first and second lien loans, uni-tranche structures and equity co-investment positions.

We are pleased to be the lead lender in a transaction, as well as either a participant in a club transaction, or even a participant in a large widely-syndicated financing transaction.
