Intrepid Guides Advice Media on Its Recapitalization and Growth Financing With Tree Line Capital Partners

Intrepid announced today that it acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Advice Media in its efforts to refinance its existing debt and secure additional growth financing from Tree Line Capital Partners. Advice Media, headquartered in Park City, Utah, is a technology-enabled digital media company specializing in managing the online footprint of private medical practices nationwide. Founded in 2008 by Shawn Miele, Advice Media has developed, both organically and through add-on acquisitions, an end-to-end platform supporting customers to build, host, and manage Websites, improve patient review metrics and customer engagement, optimize lead generation capabilities, and manage social media activity.

“The Intrepid team ran a very efficient marketing process and provided a number of viable financing solutions to choose from,” said Shawn Miele, CEO and majority owner of Advice Media. “Intrepid was strategic in their marketing outreach to ensure we secured a financing solution that best matched our current and future needs. We chose to work with Tree Line because of their demonstrated ability to support borrowers with significant post-close capacity for acquisitions and other growth initiatives.  Our new financing structure will be a key driver for our growth ahead.”

“This had the making of a strong borrower-lender relationship from the first meeting. Tree Line understood the team’s goals from the onset and worked with us to creatively structure a facility that will allow Advice Media to pursue its growth opportunities,” said Jonathan Zucker, Managing Director and Head of the Capital Markets Group at Intrepid.

Private practice doctors face more competition and online scrutiny than ever, and customers rely heavily on Advice Media’s digital marketing solutions to attract new patients to their practice, manage their online presence, and drive quantifiable results to their bottom line.
