Bay Capital raises more than $50m for second mezzanine fund


dollar_5_170sqLower mid-market firm Bay Capital Investment Partners’ latest mezzanine fund has topped its target, an SEC filing showed.

The BCA Mezzanine Fund II, which launched with a $30m target in March this year, has collected nearly $50.5m, according to the filing.

Bay Capital received commitments from 44 LPs, which had to contribute at least $50,000.

In another regulatory filing in April the firm revealed that it had tapped investors for nearly $21m.

The fund follows the first mezzanine vehicle, which raised $10m in 2007.

Bay Capital targets smaller companies needing “more flexibility than many banks can provide” and who cannot access larger private equity funds. It provides a number of financing options including senior and subordinated debt with warrants and preferred stock and common equity.
