that are among the most complex in history, but our approach is fundamentally simple: We seek to partner with highly motivated management teams and entrepreneurs to design and implement strategic and operational changes that will take these market-leading businesses to the next level of growth and beyond.

In general, we act as catalysts for change by investing capital in companies that have reached a transition point in their development. Our financial expertise and significant resources allow us to be flexible in investment structure and size. We have taken publicly-listed companies private, acquired divisional assets through corporate-divestiture transactions, partnered with family-owned businesses and strategic buyers, and purchased and grown companies through industry-consolidation strategies. This flexibility allows us to consider a wide-range of opportunities, so we can find the optimal investments for the benefit of the companies we invest in as well as our investment partners.
