Davis, CA and San Diego, CA – March 6, 2017
CVF Capital Partners (“CVF”) announces the opening of a San Diego office in the downtown business district. This new Southern California office, allows CVF to broaden its California presence and be closer to Southland middle-market companies.

José Blanco, CVF Managing Partner, commented, “We have done business for years all over California and the Central Valley, but having a local San Diego office will allow us to broaden our reach and be closer to business owners, advisors, bank partners and many of our LP’s in Southern California”.

CVF’s launch of its third fund, CVF III, is looking to capture the positive economic and business dynamics of anticipated lower taxes, less regulatory burden and a good macroeconomic outlook. As the group has done over the last decade, it will invest mezzanine capital through subordinated debt and equity instruments in lower-middle and middle market companies throughout California, the Pacific Northwest and the broader U.S. Southwest. “We continue to increase our efforts in expanding our geographic footprint and will continue to seek the best partners. To date, we have done transactions in California, Washington, Oregon and Texas. Opening a new office will allow CVF to expand and better cover markets throughout the West”, Ed McNulty, CVF Managing Partner commented.

As part of this new expansion, CVF has brought Mr. Stefan Okhuysen back on board. Mr. Okhuysen, previously worked for the firm and now returns as a Principal to head the new office. Brad Triebsch, CVF Managing Partner, commented, “We are very happy to have Stefan back. Having him leading our efforts in Southern California and into new markets will help our firm’s growth and continued success. In addition, his experience in Hispanic markets and companies will greatly aid businesses pursuing cross border opportunities”.

With the launch of CVF III, the California-based firm intends to invest between $5 and $20 million dollars per transaction in Mezzanine debt and/or equity. CVF will continue to focus mainly on financing acquisitions, management buyouts, recapitalizations, expansions and strategic opportunities with a generalist industry approach.
