Criteria

Underserved Market:

“Our typical investment is $5 million to $20 million in size, and focused on lower middle market companies that typically fall “below the radar screen” of larger private equity firms and the broader capital markets.”

Opportunities:

“We seek opportunities to partner with strong management teams who have built the business delivering proven services or products with substantial growth potential looking for non-dilutive capital to facilitate the company going from good to great. We welcome investment referrals from investment banking firms, brokers, lenders, attorneys, accountants, consultants, business executives and other investors. All information provided to us is treated confidentially.”

Transaction Types:

“We support a wide array of transaction types, including, without limitation, expansion and growth capital, recapitalizations, refinancings, management buyouts and change of control transactions, and strategic acquisitions to support a company’s growth.”

Industries:

“We invest in a wide range of industries, including areas where we have demonstrated experience, such as manufacturing, distribution, business services, logistics, consumer, healthcare, and financial services. Our prior experience across a broad range of industries helps us articulate a thoughtful approach toward due diligence and strategic planning.”
