Prudential Capital Group announced it has met the growing capital needs of middle market companies by providing $13.5 billion of senior debt and junior capital to more than 220 companies globally in 2017. Prudential Capital Group is a source of private capital for public and private companies and the private capital arm of PGIM, the $1.2 trillion global investment management businesses of Prudential Financial, Inc.

“Prudential Capital has been supporting the varied capital needs of global middle market companies for many years, and we are pleased to have provided a record level of capital this past year,” said Allen Weaver, senior managing director and head of Prudential Capital Group. “We have a long-term relationship orientation, which has proven to be very attractive to issuers in this market.”

Investment grade and below investment grade purchases of $13.5 billion were record for a single year. Pricoa Capital Group, Prudential Capital’s international unit, also had a record year with a 32 percent increase in originations over 2016. Highlights include:

  • $2.5 billion in UK, Ireland and the Netherlands
  • $623 million in Latin America
  • $593 million in Australia and New Zealand

In January 2017, Prudential Capital Partners V, a middle-market mezzanine fund focused on North America and Europe, began its investment period and completed more than $500 million in new investments. Highlights include:

  • 12 new transactions
  • $508 million originated in North America
  • $45 million (follow-on financing)

Other teams, such as the Energy Finance Group, Infrastructure Finance and Equipment Finance also contributed $3.9 billion to the 2017 origination total. For the year, Prudential Capital’s portfolio grew to $82.2 billion, and added 100 new relationships.

“We have a lot of momentum coming out of 2017,” added Weaver. “We expect to continue to provide significant capital to support the global growth plans of our existing and new clients from our thirteen offices around the world in 2018.”
