We have bought from founders who fully exit, others who remain as CEOs, and everything in between. In each case we pride ourselves on being excellent investors in and stewards of lower middle market businesses.
Value Creation Levers
Focus on organic growth:
- New products and services
- New locations/geographic markets
Founders often see these opportunities, but are reluctant to further concentrate their family wealth by additional investments in the company
Growth through Acquisitions
We have completed more than 50 add-on transactions for our portfolio companies, serving as the corporate development function for many of those companies while allowing management to focus on the core business.
Leverage Northlane Executive Network
We partner with operating executives with industry-specific experience who in turn work with management to expand profit margins – over our history we have accelerated EBITDA growth during our ownership.
