Our track record proves we get deals done.
We have been an active participant in lower middle market private equity since 1995. We have the know-how and relationships to get deals done even under challenging circumstances. And we often see value that others miss.
We closed 10 new platform investments in 2008 and 2009 while many of our peers were idle. We are creative, resourceful and tenacious.
We value our intermediary partners.
Many of us are former investment bankers and we appreciate the value of the intermediary. Our goal is to be a good partner in the process, win or lose. You will find us respectful and responsive — we listen.
Working with us you’ll find that we are:
- Opportunistic, open-minded and innovative
- Tireless and resolute, but down-to-earth and respectful
- Able to understand opportunities and the untapped potential others may miss
- Consistently on time and transparent
- True to our word — without attitude or egos
- Dedicated to building relationships along with building businesses
We typically look at:
- Healthy, successful businesses in all industries
- $3 to $20 million EBITDA
- Control equity investments in LBOs and recapitalizations (and minority investments on a selective basis)
- Businesses with a history of stable cash flow
- Niche market leaders
