CVF Captial Partners
CVF Capital Partners (“CVF”) was established in 2005 to provide capital to small and medium-sized businesses. Since its inception, CVF has targeted California and in particular its underserved Central Valley. While CVF remains the financial partner of choice for Central Valley business owners, the firm has grown to serve the entire Western United States, having invested as far north as the Pacific Northwest and as far east as Texas.
CVF’s capital is used to finance late stage growth and expansion, strategic acquisitions, ownership transitions, and recapitalizations. CVF typically provides the layer of a company’s capital structure between senior debt and common equity, often referred to as mezzanine capital, in the form of subordinated debt and preferred stock investments. While CVF can invest as a majority owner or as part of a control equity group, it typically holds minority equity stakes.
CVF focuses on growing firms across the Western United States with at least $1 million in cash flow. Our target investment is between $3 million and $15 million, although we have strong partner relationships with other private equity firms and sponsors that can allow us to complete significantly larger investments.
