Professional services highlights

Dental practice

Meridian arranged financing for a $1.85 million share purchase for a dental practice. This funding enabled the principal owner to buyout their partner and grow their practice.


Meridian provided a $147K line of credit for a pharmacy loan payout. This gave the pharmacy owner a more flexible way to manage their debt.
