Comvest Partners provides $70m financing to Nationwide Energy Partners for strategic growth


Comvest Partners, a prominent private equity and credit investment firm, has announced a significant financial move involving its direct lending platform, Comvest Credit Partners. Acting as the Administrative Agent and Sole Lender, Comvest Credit Partners is providing a $70 million senior secured credit facility to Nationwide Energy Partners (NEP), an Ohio-based utility management service provider focused on the multifamily housing market.

Supporting Strategic Initiatives and Debt Retirement

The primary use of the financing is to retire existing debt and bolster NEP’s strategic initiatives aimed at expanding its services and market reach. NEP, established in 1999, has become a key player in providing privatized electricity and water management solutions across multiple states including Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and Texas. Their services encompass the design, installation, and maintenance of last-mile electric and water infrastructure systems, as well as offering billing, data analytics, consulting, and customer support.
