We place great value on our relationships with the business owners, intermediaries, and advisors who provide new investment opportunities. Our dedicated sourcing efforts enable us to provide timely, thoughtful feedback on ideas presented by these valuable relationships. When appropriate, we are willing to pay buy-side fees for qualified introductions to viable acquisition candidates.
Acquisition opportunities can either represent an initial investment in a new industry or a complementary acquisition to one of our Groups Seeking Acquisitions. If the opportunity represents an investment in a new industry, we seek the following criteria:
We seek companies that are valued between $30-$500 million.
We seek product-oriented businesses that are generally either a provider of proprietary products or are a niche, value-added distributor.
Key management team resident in North America, but operations can be international.
If the acquisition is complementary to one of our groups seeking acquisitions, then there are no size or geographic constraints. The only consideration is the fit with the existing business. The following provides an outline of our groups currently seeking acquisitions.
