Abacus Finance Group served as administrative gent and sole lead arranger for senior secured credit facilities to support the leveraged recapitalization of Right Networks by BV Investment Partners.

Hudson, NH-based Right Networks is an application, hosting and service provider for small business applications, primarily Intuit QuickBooks.

Boston-based BV Investment Partners is a leading middle-market private equity buyout firm investing in the information and business services and communications sectors.

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

“This was our first transaction with Abacus, and we were really impressed by the speed and efficiency of their due diligence process,” said Matthew Kinsey, a partner in BV Investment Partners.

“The team knew the sector, understood the business model and the risks,” added Sean Wilder, a principal of the firm. “We were able to go from mandate to close quickly.”

“This is a new relationship for us and a very promising one,” said Tim Clifford, president and CEO of Abacus. “All of us enjoyed working with Matt, Sean and their colleagues. They brought us a market-leading company, were responsive and easy to work with, and appreciated our strong industry knowledge and the quick close – key elements of what we call our total partnership approach. We look forward to working with them on future transactions.”
