Balboa Capital completed a $251 million securitization of equipment lease and loan backed notes, its fourth and largest transaction to date.
Credit Suisse acted as the sole initial purchaser of the notes and the transaction was rated by both DBRS and Moody’s Investors Service. Balboa Capital will use this additional capacity to provide growth capital to small businesses, middle market companies, franchises and equipment vendor businesses throughout the U.S.
