A Record of Market Leadership and Innovation
Mezzanine Management Central Europe (MMCE) is a leading independent provider of mezzanine capital in Central and Eastern Europe.
Originally developed in the North American market and the UK, mezzanine was not a common instrument in Central and Eastern Europe. MMCE has been a pioneer in introducing it to the capital markets across the region.
In 2002, MMCE launched Accession Mezzanine Capital L.P. (AMC I), the first mezzanine fund exclusively dedicated to Central and Eastern Europe. With total commitments of EUR 115 million, the fund focuses on investments in the new European Union member states including Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. AMC I was fully invested by May 2007.
In 2007, MMCE raised its second mezzanine fund, Accession Mezzanine Capital II L.P. (AMC II). The fund targets primarily middle-market enterprises in the EU accession countries (including Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania and Bulgaria) and also other growth economies in the region such as South-Eastern Europe, Ukraine and the Russian Federation. The fund was closed successfully at EUR 261 million.
Since its inception, MMCE has been committed to remain consistently at the forefront, adding depth to the debt capital markets and broadening the range of financing alternatives for investors across the region.
MMCE is an affiliate of the MML Capital Partners group which is one of the leading independent providers of junior capital in Western Europe. Since its inception in 1988, it has managed 4 mezzanine funds which have invested over USD 1.5 billion in more than 81 companies in Western Europe and North America (www.mmlcapital.com).
