Unitranche and acquisition line for OundA

Bright Capital provides unitranche financing to support the formation of the nucleus for the buy-and-build strategy. For the roll-up Bright Capital provides an acquisition line to support the acquisition of more than 100 individual opticians.

Unitranche for the acquisition of Natsana

Bright Capital provides financing for the acquisition of Natsana through DOMUM Unternehmer & Kapital GmbH. The financing enabled Domum to unite the market leaders for nutritional supplements on Amazon and significantly growt the business. 

Bright Capital invested the time to understand our business and our objectives in relation to the rather new and complex business model primarily based on Amazon.
