Founded in 2008 in Spain, Oquendo Capital is an independent firm specialised in providing private debt and preferred equity instruments targeted at Spanish lower mid-market companies.
Oquendo provides financing for private equity funds that aim to optimize returns in LBO/MBO transactions. Oquendo has long standing relationships with all financial institutions which ensures a swift and successful execution. Additionally, Oquendo provides preferred equity and/or debt to private equity owned companies that require growth capital or to private equity funds that require additional investment capacity.
Oquendo partners with family owned businesses that seek funds for growth, acquisitions or shareholder reorganization. Long term flexible capital allows companies and their shareholders to fulfil their strategic objectives without incurring in additional debt, minimizing dilution and retaining management control.
Oquendo works with minority shareholders that are willing to increase their equity ownership or acquire a majority interest. Preferred equity and mezzanine debt is well suited for such situations, providing an alternative that is more flexible than bank debt and less dilutive than common equity.
