Source Capital is pleased to announce that it has successfully closed on $193 million in commitments, including one tier of SBA debenture leverage, for its Source Capital Credit Opportunities Fund IV, L.P. (the “Fund”) exceeding its original target of $150 million. The funds raised include commitments from institutional investors, family offices, and high net worth individuals.
The Fund will continue the successful strategy of Source’s previous credit funds by providing flexible credit and equity to lower middle market companies, investing $4 million to $20 million of capital per transaction.
The Fund commenced investing in December 2020 and was licensed as a Small Business Investment Company by the U.S. Small Business Administration in July 2021. To date, the Fund has closed seven investments and realized its first successful exit in December 2021.
“We are very pleased to have been oversubscribed for this fund and are excited to add more resources and capital to our growing credit platform,” said Tom Harbin, Managing Partner of Source Capital. “The high interest level from our incumbent investors and many new investors demonstrates strong support for our investment strategy. We look forward to expanding our partnership model with new companies and sponsors and to providing further support to the seven investments the Fund has made to date.”
“We are particularly excited to have entered this fund into the SBIC program as its mission aligns with our values,” said Joe Rodgers, Managing Director of Source Capital. “The Fund will expand upon Source Capital’s 20-year history of providing small businesses with growth capital and operational support. We are proud to have enabled significant economic growth in the lower-middle-market, creating shareholder value, employment opportunities, and broad distribution of equity ownership.”
