SEATTLE, Dec. 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Columbia Pacific Advisors’ Business Finance strategy ( CPBF ), a Seattle-based fund which makes debt and structured equity investments in privately-held and sponsor backed companies, celebrated its three year anniversary of business operations.

“CPBF marks its third anniversary with gathering momentum. We are honored to work with dynamic founders and other entrepreneurial business leaders who choose to partner with CPBF to finance value-creating strategic initiatives,” said Trent Stedman, Managing Director of CPBF. “Our team’s diverse and deep experience and solutions-oriented approach have enabled shareholders of privately held middle market companies to generate gains of more than $350 million in this short time, through minimally-dilutive financings for acquisitions, organic growth initiatives, and balance sheet repositionings.”

  • Increased Triad Semiconductor ’s facility from $16 million to $23 million to support their continued development of innovative analog chipsets for AR/VR, medical devices, and networking products.
