Capital Research Partners has recently been retained to secure $10 million of subordinated debt and/or equity by a Midwest-based equipment leasing company (the â€œCompanyâ€) who offers secured small ticket, middle market equipment leases, generally up to $40 thousand, to creditworthy businesses. Senior management, who has a combined over 50 years in the leasing business, sold their leasing company in 2003 to an entrepreneur who was rolling up finance companies and ultimately bankrupted the entity due to management mistakes. Senior management of the Company has recently purchased certain assets from the bankrupt estate, including a $35 million portfolio whose roots relate to their previous company, and intend to grow by leveraging their long-standing strategic vendor and broker relationships. The Company has access to an existing $75 million debt facility (which was originally to their predecessor company) with immediate availability of $40 million which will grow to $75 million as the $35 million current portfolio is paid down. The Company also is in discussions with its current senior debt provider and others to obtain an additional facility to support the Companyâ€™s growth plan.Â

In the Asian-European Music High School in Vienna students from Asia and all over the world will be able to focus on their passion in the very cradle of classical music. At the same time they will enjoy an outstanding IB-program (International Baccalaurate program) education in English which preserves their chances to opt for a non-musical career at any of the worldâ€™s top universities. Learning, practicing and performing music is one of the best ways to unite children from different languages and cultures. The school will shine through a combination of musical and educational leaders. Especially in Asia, the demand for a classical European music education soars. Enrolment in international schools all across Asia has expanded tremendously. It is planned that the Asian-European Music High School will open in summer 2012.
Learning takes place in an environment which welcomes diversity, as well as insisting on social harmony, cultural tolerance and international understanding. While helping its students to mature both academically and as musicians, the Asian-European Music High School would not only set their path for a career in the field of music and culture, but in any chosen career, preparing them as leaders and global citizens.
