IDENTIFY BUSINESSES WITH UNREALIZED POTENTIAL(Translation: Looking at the numbers while also looking beyond the numbers)
To find the true potential of any business, one needs to look well beyond the raw numbers presented in financial statements. We pride ourselves on developing a very thorough understanding of each business. This enables us to understand where each company's opportunities lie and determine whether our team's skill set is appropriate to help the management execute on these opportunities.
PARTNER WITH ENTREPRENEURIAL MANAGEMENT TEAM(Translation: Pick the right teams and reward success)
We view ourselves as enablers for entrepreneurial managers who have two key attributes: a passion for their business and the desire to realize their vision. They are willing to look at new and better approaches in any industry or market cycle and abhor complacency. These teams have not necessarily been through every possible business situation, but they have the capacity to adapt, learn, and excel in climates of uncertainty.
EXECUTE ON AN AGREED UPON VISION(Translation: When things are going according to plan, let them manage the business. When issues arise, we work together as a team)
While commonalities exist between businesses and industries, there is no magic bullet to consistently achieving superior results. Our success has come from working closely with management teams to develop plans and allowing them to execute on them. Our investment and operational expertise enables us to truly understand the challenges that managers encounter, and as such, we can provide worthwhile advice and insight which managers value rather than uninformed observations.
