  • Low to mid-technology manufacturing
  • Value-added distribution
  • Select service companies
  • Niche markets or proprietary product/processes
  • Companies that have faced some sort of operational or managerial impairment
  • Companies that participate in a fragmented industry with potential for consolidation or growth

Transaction Size

  • Transaction value from $5 to $50 million
  • Annual sales over $5 million
  • Companies that are cash flow neutral or experiencing moderate losses are acceptable

Ownership and Management

  • Closely-held private companies undergoing ownership transition
  • Corporate divestiture of non-core business units
  • Preference for quality management team which will remain but can bring in senior management when necessary
  • Controlling interest required

  • No geographic preference for transaction size near mid to upper end of our target range or for add-on acquisitions
  • Preference for companies with limited international sales
