By , in PR PR California on .

SAN FRANCISCO–()–Seacoast Capital, a lower middle market non-control growth capital investor, announced today its $19 million investment in Gracelock Industries (GLI). The investment was Seacoast’s fifth 2017 non-controlling platform investment.

GLI, headquartered in El Segundo, CA, is an innovative e-commerce marketplace platform focused on transforming large, fragmented industries through online commerce, community, and feature-rich content.

Seacoast’s investment in GLI will primarily be used to fund the Company’s continued growth and expansion into other attractive vertical markets but to also refinance some of its existing indebtedness and supply it with a platform for accelerated growth.

“With our investment in GLI, Seacoast was able to partner with a Company at the forefront of e-commerce,” said Timothy Fay, a Partner with Seacoast Capital.

“Seacoast exceeded all of our expectations during our capital raising process,” commented GLI management. “We were looking for a partner that could help us grow, not just a lender or financier. After executing our own diligence on Seacoast and its competitors, the Seacoast choice was clear. We look forward to a long partnership with them.”
