Investment Guidelines We typically seek to deploy $20 million to $75 million of equity for controlling or substantial-minority positions in North American-based companies through a range of transaction structures – leveraged buyouts, corporate divestitures, recapitalizations, going-privates, build-ups, and growth financings. We are specifically interested in opportunities with the following attributes:

  • Company Size – Revenues of $40+ million and EBITDA of $6+ million. Transaction value of $35 million to $250 million. No minimum size for add-on opportunities.

  • Industries – Niche manufacturing, business services, healthcare, low-medium technology, and education (K-12, post-secondary, corporate training, etc.).

  • Growth – Meaningful opportunity through organic growth, acquisition, and/or market consolidation.

  • Geography – Companies that are headquartered or generate a majority of revenues in North America. Will pursue add-on opportunities internationally.

  • Management – Qualified core management team motivated by significant equity ownership.

  • Co-investing – Considered with limited partners, sponsors, and/or deal sources.

  • Other – Must be a friendly transaction. Board representation is required.
