“We are pleased that our lenders continue to show support of our business, as indicated by this significant commitment increase.  Wells Fargo has been an important part of our success since the beginning, and we appreciate their leadership in upsizing this facility.  Likewise, the continued support of companies such as SunTrust, Goldman Sachs, and Key Equipment Finance is something for which we are very grateful and proud,” commented MidCap’s CFO, David Moore.

Howard Widra, MidCap’s CEO, adds, “This additional support from our lenders enables us to continue to build our leading presence in the middle market healthcare space.  The larger facility allows us to address the significant credit needs in our target markets across all four of our business segments and gives MidCap the ability to grow its financing portfolio in excess of $1 billion.”
