CRP Celebrates 20 Years

Capital Resource Partners celebrated its 20th anniversary in late February; having organized its first fund, CRL I, a $92 million fund, in February of 1988. Founding Partner, Robert Ammerman, recently commented "CRP has now been an investor through three market cycles, almost exactly 10 years apart, and what makes me proudest about our organization is its commitment to being an active investor regardless of the overall market and the views of others - we have completed many transactions across five funds and have found excellent investment opportunities in many different market environments."

CRP's focus today remains unchanged - to provide growth and recapitalization financing in the form of subordinated debt and preferred stock to permit companies to grow through acquisition or internal expansion. In addition, we have helped and anticipate continuing to help companies respond successfully to pressure from their existing financing sources who may be reacting to macro financial market conditions to the detriment of the individual company. Our experience is that the current market turmoil will cause senior lenders, CLO's and hedge funds to renegotiate or exit certain credits regardless of the company's success. CRP is here to help with a take-out financing.

Please email or call Jeff Potter ( or 617-478-9611), Nick Scola ( or 617-478-9621) or Andy Silverman ( or 617-478-9620) to discuss how we can help your business continue to grow and prosper.

We would also like to thank the CEOs and other investors who have helped us along the way and a special thanks to the limited partners who have paid us the ultimate compliment by entrusting their money with us.
