Defensible Market Position

We formed our investment philosophy around providing a better opportunity for sellers of businesses in the lower mid-market.

As part of our philosophy, we prefer not to take 100% equity ownership. We believe that our interests should be aligned with the sellers, managers and employees. Because of this, we structure our investments so that all parties retain a portion of the equity.

We intend to be long-term investors, therefore we see the target companies reputation and its employees as our greatest assets.
