MVC Capital is an externally-managed Business Development Company (BDC) that trades on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the symbol "MVC". The Company seeks to build shareholder value by making yielding¹ , equity and other investments in middle-market companies across various industries, with flexibility to invest across the entire capital structure.
MVC Capital generally targets companies at the lower end of the middle market, with annual revenue ranging from $10 million to $150 million and EBITDA of between $3 million and $25 million. Since these companies tend to be overlooked by traditional lenders and investment banks, MVC has a greater opportunity to positively influence the financial and operational outcomes of these organizations.
Through our manager, The Tokarz Group Advisers, MVC Capital is committed to delivering shareholder value. Effective due diligence and ‘writing the check' are only the beginning. Our primary responsibility is to thoroughly understand the long-term business objectives of our portfolio companies and work in lock-step with our management teams to achieve these goals. Our ability to recognize value where others don't, combined with our ability to partner with our portfolio investments to achieve operational success, is what ultimately distinguishes MVC Capital from our peers.
¹"Yielding investments" mean investments that produce regular income or cash distributions.
