“We approached the US Capital team for financing for a strategic acquisition in Holland, after traditional banks in the US found the transaction too challenging to finance,” said Bob Howard-Anderson, CEO at Fulham. “We are grateful to the US Capital team for having structured and provided this custom unitranche financing of $8 million, which allowed us to pursue our growth strategy. Thank you for what has been a very supportive and satisfying business relationship.”
“We have greatly appreciated working with Fulham’s professional management team under Bob Howard-Anderson’s experienced leadership and backed up by his talented CFO, James Cooke,” said Jeffrey Sweeney, Chairman and CEO at US Capital Global. “Having a top-drawer CEO like Bob made it a real pleasure to work with the company in structuring and providing this custom credit facility. Thank you for repaying the facility in full. We want to wish Fulham the very best going forward.”
