We Are Value Builders

Throughout over twenty five years of investing in private equity,
our firm has created value by transforming companies.
We form partnerships with seasoned management teams,
and together we build bigger businesses through add-on
acquisitions, organic growth, and operational improvements.

Our Strategy

Buy & Build

Our portfolio companies operate in fragmented industries and serve as platform companies for consolidation. We will commit additional equity capital to make accretive add-on acquisitions.

Middle Market Commitment

We have been investing in middle-market leveraged buyouts primarily in North America since 1993. Over that time, we have owned 33 portfolio companies, which have completed over 280 add-on acquisitions. Our target initial equity investment is between $10-125 million.

Industry Focus

We target businesses in industries with consolidation potential, predictable growth, and strong cash flow. Our areas of expertise include: business services, distribution, healthcare services, government services and defense, and light manufacturing.

Long-Term Partnerships

We work hard to identify and retain gifted and driven managers and entrepreneurs, and we take pride in being a good partner with our management teams. As a result, we regularly work with the same management teams on multiple transactions.

Operational Improvements

We are a hands-on investor and devote significant time and effort to helping each portfolio company succeed. We support management to make operational improvements and create operating efficiencies when necessary.  We also invest in our companies’ organic growth.

Proven Success

We seek opportunities that offer the potential for significant capital gains while minimizing the risk of losses. Since 1993, we have made 33 “platform” acquisitions and over 280 add-on acquisitions, representing approximately $10 billion in enterprise value.
