Business Acquisition

M&A Fund Overview

The company is a privately held, entrepreneurial investment firm with a focus on acquiring and running a small to medium sized business in North America. We are generally looking only to acquire a controlling stake in a stable company with a track history of profitability. We provide an excellent exit alternative for business owners who are considering retirement or taking a significantly reduced role in daily operations. We differ from traditional strategic or PE buyers as we offer a unique combination of capital and financial flexibility and management expertise.
