Stout provided portfolio valuation advisory services to an SEC-registered investment advisor that provides direct lending solutions for small to middle market companies. We delivered valuation analyses that were critical to meeting the advisor's financial reporting requirements.
The advisor is a leading global alternative asset manager specializing in originating and providing credit financing solutions to facilitate the growth, acquisitions, refinancings, and recapitalizations of small and medium-size enterprises. With over $7 billion of capital invested in over 500 companies, the advisor provides small and medium-size enterprises with term loans, asset-based lending, invoice factoring, trade finance, equipment financing, and treasury management. Since its inception, the firm has provided working capital to the business-to-business, manufacturing, service, and distribution industries.
Stout works with the advisor on a quarterly basis to provide independent, third-party valuations for financial reporting purposes. As part of the ongoing engagement, Stout values approximately 40 different companies and nearly 100 securities ranging from senior secured term loans to warrants worth more than $2 billion.
