Representative Case Studies
GEF’s leadership has funded over $1 Billion of equipment value across the middle market supporting growth and companies in transition. The following are a few examples of how we have helped a diverse group of companies with specific challenges or opportunities involving equipment assets.
Digital Telecom Service Provider | $8,000,000
A cloud-based telecommunications provider required growth capital to support new contract execution and technology hardware acquisition that would reside in a co-location facility. A lease structure was created to support each new contract with end of lease flexibility.
Waste Treatment Company | $3,000,000
A private equity-owned waste treatment and processing company sought to deploy its mobile processing assets to remediate waste at a customer location. A lease structure enabled the lessee to recover the majority of its value-added investment in the equipment and provide end of lease flexibility for customer negotiations.
Equipment Rental Company | $3,000,000
An entertainment industry equipment rental company required add-on funding outside of their constrained bank working capital facility. A lease providing 100% financing and flexible end of lease options satisfied customer needs without interfering with the bank’s loan agreement.
Healthcare Services Business | $2,200,000
A private equity-backed hospital platform opened a specialty hospital with a REIT investor and required equipment financing. A Lease on the new hospital equipment combined with a REIT cooperation agreement enabled the customer to open the hospital with minimal new equity.
Professional Services Firm | $5,250,000
A well-capitalized professional services firm requested financing for new handheld technology vital to delivering their consulting services. A finance lease with a guaranteed purchase option enabled the customer to activate a new practice area of their firm with attractive revenue and EBITDA margins.
Recycling Solutions Company | $2,600,000
A family-owned manufacturing business converts recycled rubber tires into lawn and garden products sold in big box hardware stores. After being turned down by their bank in financing its new capital expenditure plan, a lease structure helped to preserve working capital and was isolated on specific new assets.
