Industry Focus and Geographic Areas
Bond Capital has experience in and focuses on: value added manufacturing, specialty distribution and wholesale, transportation, business services, information technology and services, agriculture, health care, private education, consumer products, other growth and transforming sectors.
As a company based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Bond Capital is best described as a generalist who really likes businesses with cash flow (EBITDA). We have worked with many types of businesses and have found similarities in the banking requirements of each.
In our experience, proximity is a key ingredient to success. We consider all companies in Canada or the US that can be accessed within a few hours from our head office in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Bond Capital is guided by fairness, transparency, and directness. We seek partners with similar values.
We build trust and seek out common values with interested companies long before a transaction begins. A partner with Bond Capital wishes to be guided towards a sustainable competitive advantage evidenced by growing positive cash flow, and good governance practices.
Bond Capital avoids significant invasive change to an investee business. We have a history of relying on management to operate the business while we focus on banking & finance. We collaborate by providing best practices dialogue as an invited observer at the Board of Directors level.
As a growth oriented value investor we provide the necessary stewardship, mentorship and financial resources to succeed.
Investment Size & Structure
Our direct investments at Bond Capital range from $2 million to $30 million structured as debt and/or equity. We arrange financial structures with or without syndication. Non-syndicated capital structures inclusive of Bond Capital range from $10,000,000 to $100,000,000. If more capital is needed, Bond Capital can structure, arrange and fund through its proprietary syndication network. A common capital appropriation would be equal parts of senior debt and equity. Bond Capital will participate when a gap exists between the entrepreneur and their bank.
A typical Bond Capital investment consists of interest bearing current pay debt paired with an “equity kicker”. This deferred payment is in lieu of common share equity, usually in the form of warrants. Depending on the risk profile of the prospective company, Bond Capital investments can be structured using other forms of capital such as common share equity, redeemable preferred stock with or without conversion rights, bonus interest, royalties, and PIK (payment-in kind) to reduce the current-pay cash interest.
