BlueArc Capital's buyout of Brunswick Bowling financed by Gladstone

Gladstone Investment Corporation provided debt for a buyout of Brunswick Bowling Products by BlueArc Capital Management.

Gladstone Investment provided equity and secured debt. Capitala Finance was also part of the transaction.

Brunswick Corp. was the seller. Last year, Brunswick completed a sale of its retail bowling centers to Bowlmor AMF. Proceeds from both sales are expected to range from $270-290 million, depending on tax and liabilities.

BlueArc Capital Management, based in Atlanta, is a private investment firm.

Brunswick Corp., based in Lake Forest, Ill., targets growth investments and acquisitions in the marine and fitness segments. Brands include Mercury and Mariner outboard engines; Life Fitness and Hammer Strength fitness equipment; and Brunswick billiards tables and table tennis.

Gladstone Investment Corporation, a BDC that trades on Nasdaq under the symbol GAIN, invests in debt and equity of small- and mid-size businesses. – Abby Latour
