NBK Capital Partners is a leading provider of flexible financing solutions to companies operating in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey regions. In 2008, we launched a pioneering NBK Capital Mezzanine Fund I with US$ 157.4 million in capital commitments and invested in 8 mezzanine debt transactions and, subsequently, successfully exited all investments. In 2016, we launched our second-generation NBK Capital Partners Mezzanine Fund II with US$ 160 million in capital commitments, and invested in 5 private credit transactions.
NBK Capital Partners Private Credit provides privately negotiated secured transactions to middle market corporate borrowers across various sectors. The proceeds of private credit financing can be applied towards growth capital, acquisition financing and buyouts, balance sheet refinancing or dividend recapitalization. We have the flexibility to invest across the capital structure through conventional or Shari'ah-compliant debt structures or hybrid securities.
