US Capital Partners Announces Alliance With BMC

US Capital Partners announced that it has entered into a strategic alliance with Brooks, Houghton & Company (BHC) to further expand the depth and range of its private equity and M&A services for small to middle-market companies.

“We are delighted to be partnering with BHC’s team of experienced bankers,” said Jeffrey Sweeney, CEO and managing director at US Capital Partners. “Our firm has become a recognized leader in small-cap and lower middle-market direct lending, structuring, and loan participation. BHC has a similar well-established track record as a leader in equity placements, M&A closings, and direct debt investments in similar size markets. Both firms are dedicated to a high level of professionalism and integrity. The strong synergistic fit between our firms therefore provides an ideal opportunity for a highly effective strategic alliance.”

US Capital Partners is a private investment bank that makes direct debt investments, participates in debt facilities, and arranges equity placements for small to lower middle market businesses.

BHC is a merchant banking firm that serves middle-market and emerging growth companies.
