For more than two decades, Antares has delivered specialized capital solutions to help our private equity sponsors and their portfolio companies grow. Consistently, reliably. Through changing market cycles. With one of the largest portfolios of U.S. middle market, private-equity backed companies, we are entrenched in the market.

Our scale and experience have also made us a leading North American credit manager. Helping investors diversify their portfolios through access to middle market loans originated by Antares which we believe can offer attractive risk-adjusted returns.

With a time-tested, credit-based approach and reliable execution, we aim to deliver results for all our clients. At Antares we are proud to be different by being consistent.

1: As of June 30, 2022 Capital Under Management and Administration (“CUMA”) is defined as the sum of (i) for actively investing advised accounts (i.e., funds and separately managed accounts) and contract investor programs (either self-directed or managed by a third party), the total equity commitments and, with respect to such actively investing advised accounts, maximum leverage limits per the limited partnership agreement or other governing document of such accounts as of June 30, 2022, plus (ii) for advised accounts or contract investor programs that are no longer investing, without duplication, total outstanding principal balance of loans and loan commitments held by such vehicles as of June 30, 2022, plus (iii) for the consolidated Antares balance sheet, the sum of total outstanding principal balance of loans and loan commitments held thereby for investment, including investment securities (i.e., equity tags), cash, restricted cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2022. CLOs are consolidated entities within the Antares balance sheet and represented ~$9.2B of CUMA as of June 30, 2022.  For purposes of the foregoing clause (i), the maximum leverage limit included herein may be different than the actual amount of leverage applied in the case of any given account.  Please contact Antares if you have any questions. For the avoidance of doubt, CUMA is not intended to be the same as (and is calculated differently as compared to) Antares Capital Advisers LLC’s regulatory assets under management, as reported under Item 5.F on Part 1 of Form ADV.
2: Lead arranger role includes transactions where Antares was lead-left arranger, right-lead arranger and/or admin agent. Based on origination deal count and volume between August 21, 2015 – June 30, 2022.

Why Finance with Antares

Consistent Face to the Market

Many members of our senior leadership team — backed by an expert group of dedicated industry professionals — have helped our sponsors and borrowers succeed for more than 25 years.

“We appreciate the fact that Antares maintains a significant hold position in the loans it syndicates. This demonstrates their strong emphasis on credit quality and creates better alignment of interest across the entire syndicate.”

Established Track Record

We provide more capital solutions and close more transactions for middle-market sponsors than anyone else.3  We do it year after year. That’s why Mergers & Acquisitions calls us “a shining example of those who thrive even in uncertain conditions.”

“I’ve worked with the Antares team for 17 years and have always been impressed by the care they take in understanding the dynamics of our business. They act with a sense of urgency and as a collaborative partner to help ensure our success. It’s nice to know they have our back.”

Enduring Relationships

We enjoy a significant level of repeat business with our sponsors, and are proud of our long-standing relationships. Our sponsors and borrowers trust us because we deliver predictably and reliably, and are deeply committed to growing their businesses.

“Antares is always one of our first options to lead because of our long-term relationship, the trust we have in them and the hold sizes that they bring to the table.”

Ongoing Support

After closing the initial transaction, we typically continue to support our sponsors and borrowers for the entire life of a loan. We have the breadth of expertise these clients can rely on over the long haul, even during uncertain times.

“Antares has been a flexible and supportive partner as we’ve executed on a very aggressive expansion strategy over the last several years. Their understanding of our business and our financing needs has been a key contributor to our growth.”
