We look to partner with existing management teams in established operating businesses with a successful growth history. We recognize that most companies in our targeted size range are led by exceptional management teams that have proven the ability to generate sales momentum but are often constricted by inadequate working capital, key employee vacancies, fundamental deficiencies in back-office support or other surmountable constraints. We are happy to be involved, and roll up our sleeves to help address those limitations.Learn More
While our mandate is flexible, we generally seek to make initial equity investments of $2m-$5m and often add follow-on investments as the business grows, generally investing $5m-$10m in equity over the life of a given investment. Ideal targets have trailing EBITDA of $1m-$3m and are located in the US. We have successfully partnered with managers in the healthcare, business services and consumer products sectors. We have also funded the spin-off of small operating divisions of larger companies, partnering with management.Learn More
