Our Approach

Firmament is a value added partner to entrepreneurs, management teams and business owners and provides solutions by deploying versatile capital in a user-friendly way.

What we seek

What we seek

Firmament seeks both senior and junior debt capital opportunities - unitranche, "stretch" senior, second lien and mezzanine debt. We also provide equity capital, primarily as a minority investor, where we have particular expertise, and can structure equity investments either as preferred or common equity.

Heritage

The Firmament Group was seeded by the Arkansas-based McLarty family office in 2012. Formerly known as McLarty Capital Partners, Firmament has evolved into a global investment platform focused on turning small business into big business.

Flexible Solutions

Firmament seeks to invest in companies that have revenue between $10 million and $300 million, and EBITDA between $3 million and $30 million.

We seek investment hold sizes of $5 million to $30 million, with our “sweet spot” being approximately $10 million to $20 million. We have the capability to complete larger transactions through co-investments from our limited partners and strategic relationships.

Our Locations

We have an experienced team of investment professionals in strategic locations across the United States, as well as the United Kingdom. Over the years, our careers have enabled us to develop a global reach from the I-95 corridor between New York City and Washington D.C., but our origins still lie in the Heartland.
