INVESTMENT DNA


Structure

We believe that successful investments in companies results from continually keeping sight of the ultimate exit, whether that be from a sale to an identified group of strategic buyers or a public offering. Combinations of companies create synergistic value, and as such, we look for enhancements to companies through transaction alignment. To acquire a divesting non-core corporate asset or division and combine it with an asset that is in harmony with the platform’s base business is the ultimate success. Such a combination creates value through clarity and efficiency.

Process

All investment opportunities reviewed by ACP follow a rigorous screening process. As former operators ourselves we know how to analyze opportunities beyond traditional financial metrics. We approach each phase of our due diligence as that of a strategic investor. We have learned that driving value and successful exits comes when a company evolves within a solid strategic framework, combined with continued focused efforts and managed through disciplined metrics. Communication, in addition to a deep financial and operating understanding is a cornerstone of our culture.
