Investment Philosophy

We target privately negotiated control investments in small and lower middle market companies that generate consistent and superior shareholder returns for the benefit of our investors as well as for our owners and employees by creating value through operational improvements, internal growth and strategic acquisitions. Our investment decisions are guided by the following principles:

  • Obtain proprietary in-depth industry knowledge
  • Emphasize downside risk protection and consistency
  • Prioritize capital preservation
  • Identify market inefficiencies and attractively priced assets
  • Maintain a sole-sponsor orientation
  • Establish and practice a single investment specialty
  • Conduct thorough company specific research (not macro-forecasting)
  • Rely on underlying growth drivers to generate returns (not multiple expansion and leverage)
  • Refrain from the strategy of market timing
  • Implement conservative capital structures
  • Create proprietary deal flow
