PRESS RELEASE

Cypress Growth Capital, an alternative investment management firm headquartered in
Dallas, Texas, has closed its second royalty-based growth capital fund, CGC Royalty
Investments II, LP. The $50,000,000 fund secured capital commitments from a premier
family office investor group, all of whom participated in the firm’s prior royalty-based
fund.
Cypress was well positioned to quickly raise the new fund based on its track record of
twelve royalty-based investments since 2011 and its market-leading position as the first
and most active royalty-based growth capital firm in the United States.
“We are pleased that our prior investors chose to participate in this fund as well,” said Ed
Mello, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Cypress Growth Capital. “Our innovative
form of capital addresses a compelling market need for emerging, second-stage
businesses looking for minimally-dilutive funding in the $1M to $5M range.”
Entrepreneurs are attracted to Cypress’ patient and flexible form of royalty-based growth
capital. “We explored multiple funding options and received several offers, ranging from
more traditional private equity investments to traditional subordinated debt offerings,”
remarked James MacLean, President and CEO of Geoforce, an international provider of
track & trace and asset management solutions to the energy industry and a Cypress
portfolio company. “Our CFO spent six months evaluating more than fifty possible
capital partners. All things considered, the royalty-based growth capital structure was
the best choice. Over the last three years, we have spent considerable time with
Cypress’ principals and have found their insights and relationships valuable. They are a
trusted partner.”
