Founding Partners Steve Gord, Todd Morrissey and Kevin Condon are lower middle market veterans who were most recently founders and leaders at two well-regarded private equity firms. Hidden River was formed to focus exclusively on flexible junior capital for small business owner-operators, an area underserved by the well-worn investment approaches of growth equity, buyout, and mezzanine/credit funds.
Private Equity Raises
“Private lower middle market businesses tend to face a funding void between the often rigid investment approaches of traditional credit funds and the overly dilutive, controlling approaches of growth equity and buyout funds.” said Founding Partner, Steve Gord. We started Hidden River to address this gap in the market with our structured capital offering – flexible, hybrid debt and equity.
“We are grateful to our limited partners for their support and belief in our approach and are excited to execute on our differentiated strategy.” Gord continued.
Hidden River will support management teams who will continue to own and operate their business, while using the Fund’s investment for growth, acquisitions, inactive shareholder recapitalizations and other strategic initiatives.
Private Equity Raises
“Throughout their investment careers, our founders have consistently seen small companies struggle to find the right partner when the capital need sits somewhere between the traditional boxes of mezzanine debt and growth equity.” said Graham Bachman, Managing Director of Business Development. “We look forward to providing funding solutions to owner-operators that don’t saddle them with inflexible debt on the one hand or crowd them out as leaders of their business on the other.”
