We ourselves and through our affiliates invest in small, medium and large-sized companies, typically with revenues from $50 million up to $10 billion (depending on the specific industry sector) with high-quality, value-added products, favorable growth prospects and proven, motivated management teams who take notable equity ownership positions in their companies.
Focus selected types of investments
Control private equity investments:
We buy companies which possess leading market share positions, proven technologies, proprietary concepts and/or strong brand names; in short, companies with a sustainable competitive advantage. Moreover, we seek to participate in industries that have positive growth characteristics or stable competitive dynamics, and are not highly cyclical or capital intensive.
Distressed assets and special situations:
We buy companies with sound fundamentals but which are now under-performing or the companies are facing strategic or operational challenges, liquidity crisis, geopolitical insanity, economic flux or complex structural issues. In short, we are looking for distressed companies with the potential to turnaround.
Growth / Development capital
We seek partnerships with publicly quoted companies to provide the capital, expertise and relationships necessary to build market-leading companies. We are especially looking for companies in their early and late stage development with proven technologies, products and services and the same must have their shares traded on a stock exchange or a regulated trading platform and have minimal or no revenue.
