Our Business

Selection Process

Apollo Investment Corporation primarily focuses on the risk/reward profile of each prospective portfolio company, seeking to minimize the risk of capital loss without foregoing potential for capital appreciation. We invest in companies with leading market positions and strong free cash flows. Our investment professionals seek companies that have the following characteristics:


Value orientation / Significant free cash flow

Experienced management team

Sufficient enterprise value of assets

Strong competitive position in industry

Visible exit strategy

Potential for growth


We reduce risk by engaging in extensive due diligence from the perspective of a long-term investor and adopting flexible transaction structures. Our target investment size is from $20 to $250 million. We participate in all levels of the capital structure from secured senior debt to equity; however, we are primarily focused on mezzanine investments with stated maturities of 5 to 10 years. We also seek potential equity upside through warrants and equity co-investments.
