Since 1998, we’ve specialized in building high potential companies with EBITDA between $2 – $8 million — typically with revenues between $10 – $75 million. We seek out businesses that have what it takes: leadership in their particular industries plus management that’s as ready to collaborate as we are. In fact, no one has more experience than us building pre-middle market companies.

Transaction Types

For the majority of our transactions, we work with entrepreneurs to support the growth of their existing companies and allowing them to diversify their net worth while sharing the financial responsibility with a partner. Recapitalizations are often used to expand into new locations, develop new products, acquire add-on businesses, implement new systems and technologies, or enable access to larger lenders with better terms. Our playbook can include capital-driven growth, infrastructure additions, greenfield expansions, M&A, and other large growth opportunities.

In industries offering high potential for consolidations, we seek to drive future growth through subsequent add-on acquisitions of complementary companies. Success in these transactions requires 3Ms: strong Management, growing Market and plenty of M&A opportunities.

Companies can suffer when there is insufficient support from current ownership — often a passive family, or a large corporation where other subsidiaries get all the attention. In these situations, we partner with current management to acquire these hidden gems.

We support business owners who want to transfer their business to the next generation of family members and/or management. We work to ensure successful transactions that meet unique needs while providing opportunities for the next generations to build upon the founders’ successes.

Industries

There Is No One Size Fits All

There Is No “One Size Fits All”

We’re opportunistic about the industries we work in. So long as a company meets our criteria for size, potential and leadership, we’re excited — whether the industry is manufacturing, distribution, consumer products, food or specialty services.

Over the years, our investment interests have run the gamut from security products, landscaping services, and waste management to personal-care products, veterinary care and corporate training. In fact, we’ve already invested in over 100 unique SIC codes and apply this diverse experience to each of our companies.
