NEW YORK, NY – January, 2017 – Progress Partners, a Boston and New York-based M&A advisory firm, is pleased to announce the successful advisory of its client CPXi, a New York-headquartered global digital media platform and tech-enabled services company, in securing $6M of debt capital in November 2016 from Gibraltar Business Capital, a privately held middle-market lender providing alternative capital solutions to growth companies.
The creative financing solution – a refinancing of an existing Asset-Based Loan (ABL) line of credit – will allow the digital solutions company to leverage its existing assets more effectively with the added operating capital, allowing CPXi to execute on its 2017 growth plan. Gibraltar’s willingness to engage and deliver a solution that accommodated CPXi’s corporate needs, while enabling the Company to operate under expanded capacity in order to provision best-in-class digital solutions to advertisers, agencies, and publishers in the digital marketplace.
Mike Seiman, Founder & CEO of CPXi, reflected, “Progress Partners sourced multiple options for us and helped negotiate a favorable replacement of the debt facility we had in place.” Further, he said: “The flexibility of the ABL solution provided by Gibraltar’s team allows for CPXi to work with a new financing partner to make tactical investments in identifying new business opportunities, both organic and inorganic. The new capital allows us to execute on that strategy over the coming year.”
Nick MacShane, Founder & Senior Managing Director, who worked with Boston-based Jay Jamijian (Associate, Progress Parnters) noted that “with this deal, Gibraltar Business Capital showed its prowess and willingness to fund the operating growth of leading companies in the digital media technology sector, with an asset-based lending approach which is an increasingly relevant and pragmatic financing option for companies of this growth profile.”
