Prometheus Capital - Home Page

Prometheus Capital is a private merchant bank providing advice and capital to investors and middle market companies. The firm combines investment banking and asset management services with its focus on strategic opportunities in specific verticals. The firm is headquartered in Chicago, but has a national reach through its operating partners in other markets. The entrepreneurial and operational backgrounds of its professionals allow Prometheus to build companies where it identifies unique opportunities. These businesses are spun off into subsidiaries and managed separately. This also keeps the firm acutely aware of the challenges investors and managers face in the day-to-day battle of today’s business environment. The verticals on which the company focuses include: apparel & specialty retail; sports & entertainment; precision manufacturing; wineries; vineyards & resort real estate; and financial services.

Since its founding in 2006, Prometheus Capital has been known for its client focus and “real world” operational experience. Prometheus is best known for the ability to assimilate financials, operations and management objectives into a capital formation strategy. This process produces a timeline of operational and financial milestones that lead to lower risk, increased value, and higher risk adjusted returns.

In addition to its private “principal” businesses, Prometheus Capital also has a robust investment banking practice. The firm’s advisory services and transactional experience include:
  • Distressed Situations & Turnarounds
  • Restructurings (Financial & Operational)
  • Debt and Equity Placements (Private & Public)
  • Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Management or Leveraged Buyouts
  • Creative/Hybrid Capital Structure Solutions
  • Divestitures
  • Interim Management Assignments
