We are operationally-focused, value investors who seek to accelerate growth and help companies scale through our buy & build acquisition strategy.
Core to our strategy is to take a partnership approach to investing. We seek to partner with management teams to drive value through acquisitions, business development initiatives and operating improvements.
We typically prefer situations where the seller is willing to retain a meaningful equity stake. We strongly believe that establishing a structure in which both investors and key managers share a common ownership vision, and are motivated to maximize value, is critical to achieving superior return on investment.
In general, we look to invest in companies with $20 million to $200 million in revenues and up to $20 million in EBITDA. We focus on investment opportunities that are headquartered in North America operating in a number of industries. Preferred industries include: manufacturing, business services, information technology, security, aerospace and defense.
Typical investment candidates include companies or carve-outs involving management-led buyouts, family-owned businesses where the owner is seeking liquidity or retirement, companies that require new capital for growth, strategic initiatives or balance sheet restructurings.
