Private Equity & Subordinated Debt

Private Equity Features

We can invest minority equity for significant ownership position. Features of such an investment typically include:

  • Involvement at the Board level as director(s) and through financial reporting
  • Rather than seeking control over operations or the Board of Directors we focus on aligning the interests of all stakeholders
  • We structure protective controls which can include mutual consent for material changes to the capital structure, sale of shares, changes to business model, acquisitions/divestitures and extra-ordinary distributions and expenditures
  • An investment horizon is typically 5 to 7 years with the ability to hold for longer
