Trusted Partner for Growing Businesses

As a publicly traded company since 1961, we have provided capital to support the growth of over 250 middle-market companies.

Reorganized BDC: Credit Investment Strategy

On September 30, 2015, Capital Southwest completed the spinoff of CSW Industrials, a separate publicly-traded industrial growth company and has moved forward with its plan to redirect its remaining capital into a credit strategy as an internally-managed, credit-focused BDC, that is an active lender to middle market companies across the capital structure. Capital Southwest has divested over $210 million of legacy equity positions since 2014 and has significant dry powder to redeploy into its credit portfolio.

Middle Market Lending

Capital Southwest provides debt and equity capital in support of equity sponsor led acquisitions and in partnership with management to fund growth, acquisitions and partial liquidity. We invest in subordinated debt, first and second lien loans, uni-tranche structures and equity co-investment positions.

We are pleased to be the lead lender in a transaction, as well as either a participant in a club transaction, or even a participant in a large widely-syndicated financing transaction.
