Mosaic Capital Partners has closed a $165 million small business investment company (SBIC) fund that will provide mezzanine debt and equity to lower middle-market companies. This is Charlotte, North Carolina-based Mosaic's first fund. The private equity firm plans to invest or co-invest between $3 million and $15 million per deal for acquisition financing, control buyouts, employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) leveraged buyouts or recapitalization. For more on Mosaic's ESOP activity, its area of expertise, see Recaps Turn to ESOPs. The company targets lower middle-market businesses in the southeastern, mid-atlantic and midwestern U. S. that have more than $10 million in revenue in several sectors: business services, chemical, consumer products, environmental services, food... Mosaic also has a merchant banking affiliate, ButcherJoseph & Co. , which provides it with proprietary deal flow. Mosaic already has made several investments, including the Apothecary Shoppe, a compounding pharmacy in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and non-emergency medical-transportation business Express Medical Transporters, which Mosaic invested in in August. Mosaic is one of several firms to close SBIC funds recently. In March, Capitala Group closed a $125 million SBIC fund , and before that the Riverside Co. , in July 2014, closed a $350 million SBIC fund.

By Deborah Fineblum Schabb/JNS. Want to see with your own two eyes the spilled “milk” in the Milky Way and dozens of shooting stars streaking across the night sky. Just haul yourself down to Mitzpe Ramon, a small town in the middle of Israel’s Negev Desert this week, and roll your sleeping bag out for what the late TV personality Ed Sullivan used to call “a really big show. There, you will find amateur astronomer Ira Machefsky holding forth on the miracle you see before you, explaining why the second week of August is the time to see the year’s best display of shooting stars (well they’re actually meteors, but more... Peaking late Aug. 12 and early Aug. 13, the Earth’s orbit around the sun plows us smack dab into the path of an old comet, releasing loads of debris. This debris plummets to Earth, passing through the atmosphere and burning up in the sky, which is what we experience as shooting stars. Indeed, thanks to the sheer volume of the debris, the annual Perseids meteor shower (thought to originate in the constellation Perseus) can be seen by the naked eye pretty much anywhere in the world (especially in the northern hemisphere) from Aug. 11-16, says Machefsky, with the rate soaring from a typical one-two an hour to the aforementioned 60. . So what’s so special about the Negev. “You have to be able to see the sky and in our modern day, that’s no easy thing,” says Machefsky, a retired hi-tech professional who made aliyah from New Jersey in 2009. Light pollution is a problem in the entire civilized world, he adds. “These days all of Israel from Be’er Sheva north is aglow. it’s encroaching all the time. But here in the middle of the Negev, where the sky is open horizon to horizon, you can actually see what city people never can,” Machefsky says. Yigal Patel, an astronomer who teaches at Bar-Ilan University near Tel Aviv, says the view also tends to be more dramatic in the desert air. This year, he points out, there is a special bonus. “It’s a new Moon next week, so we won’t have that glare,” says Patel, who encourages his students to do something rare for college-aged folks: wake up before dawn Aug. 12 for the best view from Israel. viewers are better off at midnight Aug. 11, says Patel. But for Israelis looking for company—and lots of it—to count shooting. Source: www.jns.org
