What is Junior Capital? Junior capital refers collectively to the various forms of capital that fall below senior debt within the capital structure of a company. Â This form of capital mitigates the risk to a senior lender, enabling them to maximize the amount they will lend to a company. Â Such capital is often essential for middle market businesses, and is used to support rapid growth, acquisitions, full or partialÂ recapitalizations, generational transitions, partner buyouts, etc. "For business owners and managers, this financial tool can be extremely flexible. Our goal with the webinar is to give attendees an introduction to the ways junior capital can help them grow their business and discuss the situations where this type of financing is appropriate," stated Marc Reich, president of Ironwood Capital. Â "The interactive format of the webinar allows for Q&A, and we think that's a big plus - immediate answers to attendee questions."
