We concentrate on high-quality, middle-market, service-based companies with attractive cash flow and the potential for organic and acquisition-driven growth.
You'll be hard pressed to find anyone who understands these companies better than we do. Our principals have a track record not only as investors but also as successful entrepreneurs and operators in this sector.
We're well-versed in the dynamics of service businesses. The knowledge and experience we've accumulated enable us to move swiftly and surely.
Our $1.3 billion fund provides a source of immediate capital. Our relationships with lenders and co-investors give us access to substantial additional capital when necessary.
We're able to talk with business owners in their own terms, putting them at ease. Once we’re partners, we can provide support resources with our unique Portfolio Company Services that may not have been readily available to our management teams in the past.
Our approach is straightforward and open. As business owners get to know us, their enthusiasm grows for what we can accomplish together.
We're flexible and easy to work with. We find ways to structure deals to suit business owners and their businesses. Negotiations go more smoothly. Successful conclusion is more likely.
Typically, we commit equity of $50 million to $75 million to each of our portfolio companies. But the process isn't complicated. Our investment committee is made up of two people -- our founding principals.
So if you're looking for sound opportunities and worthwhile outcomes for your service-based clients, think Lake Capital.
