Dubin Clark provided equity for the deal, partner Michael Hompesch told Private Debt Investor. Balance Point provided mezzanine and an equity co-investment. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Company president Jesse Thompson will remain in his current position and retain a significant number of shares, according to a statement released Monday.

“This transaction is quintessential Balance Point:  helping successful businesses like JOTS enter the next chapter in their evolution by providing differentiated capital and leveraging our network,” said Balance Point partner Justin Kaplan in a statement. “We look forward to supporting the many men and women who comprise the JOTS team and have contributed to its growth trajectory.”
