Amur Equipment Finance completed its 11th term securitization in which it issued $466 million in notes secured by equipment loans and leases originated through its platform. This transaction was rated by Moody’s and DBRS, with over 80% of the notes rated P-1/RIH or AAA/Aaa, respectively, the highest rating granted by each agency. This follows Amur’s January issuance of nearly $500 million in notes, which was also rated by Moody’s and DBRS.
“This was an excellent transaction for Amur, with a record number of investors, and shows the durable and deep support for our business in the capital markets,” Kalyan Makam, EVP at Amur, said. “This success is a testament to the strong position we are in as a company – tremendous origination reach, an efficient and powerful platform, unrivaled financial strength, but most importantly, an incredibly talented and dedicated team.”
Amur has continued to invest in its platform, its people and the communities it serves to better allow it to deliver financing solutions efficiently and precisely to its small business customers this year. This dedicated approach has allowed Amur to grow into the largest independent equipment finance provider serving small businesses within the U.S.
“Our dedication to our product and our customer base is at the core of our identity,” Elliott Klass, general counsel and head of syndication at Amur, said. “Our focus is and will always remain on building Amur to be the leading provider of financial solutions to small business. With the strength of our company and our team today, we are confident that we will be a market leader for years to come.”
