Value Creation

Our investment approach is based on creating value by building better businesses rather than through financial engineering. We seek to create value by implementing a program of strategic initiatives and operational improvements to help drive growth, increase profitability and improve cash generation. With each investment, we work with management to build a detailed operating plan that includes:

Strategic Initiatives

Examples: Expand existing product and service offering to new customers, geographies, end markets and industries; develop new complementary product and service offering; strategic price increases

Operational Improvements

Examples: Optimize cost structure; develop plans, processes and key metrics to improve efficiency and scalability; align incentives of owners, management and employees; implement best practices

Add-on Acquisitions

Examples: Strategic acquisitions of competitors to benefit from complementary product and service offerings, customers, geographies, end markets and industries; improve economies of scale; industry consolidation
