We are not a fund and have no outside investors to report to.
We use our own capital to fund deals, mostly with cash.
We have a truly long-term time horizon, ideally permanent.
We want to “do no harm” first and foremost, so we don’t meddle; we trust and empower operating management.
Employees of companies we buy join our employee-ownership program.
We support continued growth and investment; we’re not trying to maximize short-term profits at the expense of the long-term health of the business.
We value businesses for more than just profit; extending legacies and continuing to benefit communities is important to us.
We’re operators who know how to run businesses, not just investors and financiers.
Our team has extensive M&A experience, having completed dozens of deals. We know how to get deals done.
We pay full market value and are willing to use creative deal structures to fit the situation.
