Investment Evaluation

Our partnership model allows us to make investments that work effectively for all stakeholders, while at the same time prudently managing risk. Highlights of our investment approach include:

  • Fast decision making – our average deal lead-time from start to finish is 90 days with key issues front ended
  • Few conditions, representations and warranties in sale documentation – we focus on key risks and material items
  • Low completion risk – we complete over 80% of deals where due diligence is undertaken
  • High confidentiality with sensitive information, a particular issue with trade bidders
  • Opportunity for management equity participation going forward
  • Opportunity for vendor to participate in the upside (staged exit)
  • Solution to succession issues for vendors, their families and key management
