Mansa Capital receives Green Light from Small Business Administration
Mansa Capital Management, a private equity firm focused on the USD2.5 trillion US healthcare market, has received a Green Light letter from the US Small Business Administration (SBA) to continue its application process to operate a Small Business Investment Company (SBIC).
The Green Light letter enables the firm to move toward application for licensure of a fund it manages as a SBIC.
The receipt of a Green Light letter does not, however, obligate the SBA to issue a SBIC license.
“While there are certainly no assurances, being Green-Lighted has some immediate advantages,” says Mansa Capital managing partner and chief investment officer, Ruben J. King-Shaw Jr.
Mansa Capital will be added to the SBA’s Green Light list, which is broadly distributed nationally and internationally. Inclusion on the Green Light list verifies that Mansa Capital has successfully completed the first phase of the SBA’s rigorous due-diligence process.
“We hope to leverage this heightened profile to become more visible among a broader range of prospective portfolio companies with which we might share our healthcare industry and policy expertise,” says Mansa partner and chief operating officer, Jason Torres.
Mansa Capital invests in high-growth companies with proven management teams, sound business franchises, and substantial unrealized potential. The principals are primarily interested in private businesses in the healthcare services and healthcare technology sectors. The firm also considers government-sponsored privatizations.
