Allison Payment Systems, LLC, located in Indianapolis, Indiana, specializes in providing complete outsourcing solutions for statement processing and electronic document delivery and management. The shareholders of Allison engaged Grace Matthews to market the company to select strategic buyers as well as high-quality private equity firms.
Grace Matthews advised the shareholders throughout the sale process and sought a partner with a shared strategic vision and an appropriate cultural fit. After considering a number of proposals for a complete sale, the shareholders elected to recapitalize the company through mezzanine investment from First Capital Partners and Marquette Capital Partners, and a senior debt investment from Fifth Third Bank. Grace Matthews structured the transaction to provide liquidity to the shareholders while allowing them to maintain significant majority ownership of the Company. The transaction provided financial flexibility to the shareholders and positioned the Company to capitalize on significant growth opportunities within the market.
