(NASDAQ: PBCT), announced its Healthcare Finance and Capital Markets Divisions provided a $92 million Credit Facility to MidCap Financial (“MidCap”), a middle market-focused, specialty finance firm that provides senior debt solutions to companies across all industries.
The Facility provides a “bridge” enabling MidCap to deliver fast execution and loan closings to borrowers who seek long-term permanent mortgage financing with a HUD, Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae loan, which can take a number of months to obtain approval and close.
