Our Approach

We build value with operational best practices and prudent growth capital deployment without taking on excessive amounts of leverage or unnecessary risks. We’re at our best providing equity and debt capital to profitable companies with revenues of $15 to $75 million (typical EBITDA of $5 to $15 million) and great upside potential.
