BAIRD INC. SPECIALIZES IN FINANCING SOLUTIONS
TO SERVICE THE NEEDS OF SMALL CAP
AND MID-MARKET BUSINESSES
Baird Inc. spotlights proven companies with tested business methods, lucid plans and ready assets. Undiscriminating in regard to industry, the company hones in on the potential borrower’s resources to deduce viability and generally refrains from startups or businesses without a defined course of expediency. Baird Inc. prefers to retain a small equity consideration to further align interests and inspire an environment of pooled resources for progression. With that upside secured, the company hones in on growth-oriented businesses where a feasible expectation of advancement and an attainable exit exist.
Baird Inc. typically structures its investment as a two to three year senior-secured loan, attended with monthly interest payments and equity warrants or other upside opportunities, with a clear exit strategy, typically through a traditional lender, re-finance, or company profits. It’s a strategy advantageous to borrowers that enables retention of majority equity, thus empowering them to amply reap the potential Baird Inc’s funding endows.
Banks are increasingly conservative and restrictive in lending money to sub-25 million revenue business, even those with a reputable balance sheet, concrete growth, and proven past. Baird Inc. exists as a niche player for businesses seeking an opportunity to alter their trajectory, yet nowhere to turn.
In the case of defaults, Baird Inc. will adamantly enforce its rights to monetize collateral, should it prove necessary. Baird Inc. may limit exposure in industries that, by nature, lack tangible assets, possess assets difficult to assess or are hard to attain in a worst case scenario: real estate, oil and gas and biotech. Diversification of industries in regard to investment enables Baird Inc. to construct a multifaceted portfolio while minimizing risk, a corollary of their investing blueprint. Test
