OVERVIEW

Focused Capital, Deep Relationships

Our business plan is focused and forthright:  make initial $2 to $10 million equity investments in profitable, growing companies, then support their management teams with objective insights, incremental resources and introductions to prospective customers, add-on acquisitions, capital sources and other key relationships. 

We facilitate corporate growth, recapitalizations and management-led buyouts for companies generating $10 to $50 million of revenues in the following industries:

  • Business Services
  • Niche Manufacturing
  • Financial Services

For most of the business owners we encounter, the transaction at hand is the only time they will either sell a business or look for a financial partner to help grow their company. Conversely, since 1980, our team of professionals has successfully acquired or invested in more than 85 companies. This experience, combined with our strong commitment to be active business partners and have open communication, translates into successful outcomes for all parties involved.
