HOUSTON, April 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Main Street Capital Corporation (NYSE: MAIN) ("Main Street") is pleased to announce that it recently led a new portfolio investment totaling $12.0 million of invested capital in CapFusion, LLC ("CapFusion" or the "Company") to fund the Company's near-term growth opportunities and refinance existing debt, with Main Street funding $9.6 million of the investment.  The investment in CapFusion consists of first-lien, senior secured term debt with equity warrant participation.  In addition, Main Street and its co-investor are providing CapFusion an additional commitment for $8.0 million and a further conditional commitment for additional capital to support its future growth opportunities.

Headquartered in Prairie Village, Kansas and founded in 2013 by established specialty finance industry experts, CapFusion (www.capfusion.com) is a leading technology-focused business-to-business lender in a number of previously underserved industry segments.  CapFusion provides short-term capital to established small businesses across the United States and utilizes a proprietary, technology-based lending platform that allows it to quickly determine credit risk, assess a client's needs, and fund a loan shortly after receiving a completed application from a client.  CapFusion's customers have an average of more than $1.0 million in revenue, are diversified across a number of industries including medical, retail, professional services, construction, transportation, and agriculture, and are typically looking for more nimble, flexible capital than that typically provided by traditional lenders.
