Seabury Capital’s Merchant Banking practice seeks to leverage the extensive expertise, capabilities, and relationships of the greater Seabury Capital organization to make targeted investments in the Aviation, Aerospace, and Defense sectors through three primary strategies: Private Label Aircraft Leasing, Minority Equity Investing, and Senior / Unitranche Lending.
Key Investment Strategies
- Commercial Aircraft Leasing:
The commercial aircraft leasing platform focuses on middle-aged and older aircraft, which represent a relatively unexploited market segment offering attractive risk-adjusted returns. Seabury Capital’s breadth of experience and global network enable us to identify and manage aircraft portfolios throughout their life cycle – from procurement and structured financing to asset and end-of-life management.
- Minority Equity:
Given our proprietary understanding of industry-specific trends, Seabury Capital is seeking to make targeted investments principally in the aviation-support and Aerospace & Defense industries. In addition to capital, Seabury Capital brings credibility to management teams / advisory boards, extensive structuring and term negotiation experience, and operating expertise in solving complex issues.
- Senior / Unitranche Lending:
Backed by broad industry and financing market knowledge, as well as extensive credit analysis experience, Seabury Capital offers flexible, unorthodox capital solutions in the form of senior / unitranche debt. Through its advisory practice, Seabury has the ability to appropriately diagnose a client’s strategic and operational needs and implement measures to improve its credit profile.
