LightTree Capital Solutions
Technology, Media, and Telecom (“TMT”) companies early in their life cycle are underserved by the financing markets. LightTree fills this financing void with flexible, value-added capital that is less dilutive. Our substantial TMT and financing experience underpins the solution.
LightTree Capital Solutions (“LightTree”) is a partnership between LionTree LLC (“LionTree”) and Searchlight Capital Partners, L.P. (“Searchlight”) to provide differentiated, value-added capital solutions to TMT companies currently underserved by traditional venture capital and bank financing options. Traditional financing alternatives do not cater to shifting trends, complex or new business models with limited cash flow generation. Existing options typically only include dilutive capital at progressively higher valuations, and traditional debt providers value cash flow over growth.
LightTree leverages LionTree’s global platform and sector expertise in combination with Searchlight’s TMT industry and structuring skills and its flexible, long-term capital. LionTree and Searchlight will provide capital across a range of subsectors within TMT, with a focus on growth companies that have talented management teams, strong track records of performance and a clear vision for disrupting or creating large market opportunities.
