Olympus Capital Asia Credit: Secured Mid-Market Lending
Credit - An Underserved Need for the Middle Market
Olympus Capital Asia established a structured credit investment company (“Olympus Capital Asia Credit” or “OCA Credit”) to provide structured lending solutions to mid-sized corporations in Asia Pacific. OCA Credit offers financing alternatives to customers who are underserved by commercial banks or who seek alternatives to private equity funding. It focuses on Southeast Asia, India and Australia, and North Asia on a selective basis.
Middle market companies have been underserved across the region in their need for short-term transitional capital. The availability of such capital has been further constrained by tighter regulatory requirements imposed by Basel III on banks. At a time when businesses are facing lower growth and tighter liquidity conditions, the need for this short-term transitional capital is even greater.
Recognizing the significant opportunity in this space, in 2013 Olympus established OCA Credit with a dedicated team of investment professionals based in Singapore. OCA Credit also leverages Olympus Capital’s regional platform. OCA Credit’s customers can also benefit from Olympus Capital Asia’s other areas of expertise, including management additions and restructuring, domestic consolidation, diversification into new strategic businesses and regionalization and international joint ventures.
OCA Credit focuses on companies and sponsors with strong track records, experienced management teams and strong positions in long-term healthy industries. We typically provide U.S. $20-$100 million structured loans with two to three year maturities as senior, subordinated and junior debt, acquisition financing (with a special focus on cross border deals) and to some extent special situations. Loans are typically backed by collateral including shares and second liens or a subordinated charge on assets.
