“We are delighted to have advised on the refinancing of this leading global technology and manufacturing firm,” said Jeffrey Sweeney, Chairman and CEO at US Capital Partners. “CAO approached us to refinance existing debt and to provide additional working capital to support the company’s ongoing growth.
