Abacus Finance Supports WestView Capital Partners’ Alpha II Investment


Abacus Finance served as administrative agent and sole lead arranger for senior secured credit facilities to support the recapitalization and growth investment in Alpha II by WestView Capital Partners. Abacus also made an equity co-investment in Alpha II.

Abacus team members involved in the transaction included Sean McKeever and Rafal Rydzewski, and legal counsel was provided to Abacus by Goulston & Storrs.

“As always, we were very impressed with WestView’s industry knowledge and the quality of the company and management team that they brought to us,” said Tim Clifford, president and CEO of Abacus. “We are fortunate to have a wonderful working relationship with Matt Carroll, Jeff Clark, Kevin Twomey and the entire WestView team, a longstanding client that has a tremendous track record as a sponsor and values our execution capabilities and flexibility – central elements of what we call our total partnership approach. We were delighted to be able to close our eighth transaction with them.”

“Once again, Abacus Finance proved to be a reliable partner that we can always count on,” said Matt Carroll, general partner of WestView. “The Abacus team’s seamless execution, flexibility and industry knowledge are precisely the reasons why we have such a great working relationship with them. They never disappoint.”
