Mezzanine debt is subordinated debt that ranks between senior debt and equity. It is often a more expensive form of financing because it is unsecured (requiring no collateral) and subordinates to senior debt in case of a default.
Mezzanine debt can be used for a variety of purposes, but is generally used in corporate finance deals for growth capital and acquisitions.
