CORE INVESTMENT CRITERIA AND SECTORS OF INTEREST

  • Focused on debt, equity and equity-like investments, but flexible in regards to structuring to fit the circumstances of a specific investment opportunity.

  • Open to various ownership structures, including complete buyouts (the purchase of ~100% of a business), majority investments with significant participation by the vendor and/or management team and significant minority investments (20% or greater) in the right circumstances.

  • Businesses with a demonstrated track record and well established market. For smaller opportunities (<$5M of revenues) we like to see a growth trend or the identification of specific growth opportunities that management believes they can successfully pursue.

  • Open to all sectors, with the exception of direct real estate, resources and commodities.
