CRP advised Diamond business Credit (“Diamond”) in the raising of senior debt, subordinated debt, and equity. Diamond lends $50,000 to $1 million to small businesses who cannot get bank financing. They lend against receivables and other tangible assets, and get very attractive all‐in rates of return. The owners had recently resigned from another firm who had a similar strategy and had just formed Diamond. CRP advised and was successful in the raising of all three levels of capital for this “restart” and has since advised management in relation to potential acquisitions.
