Working Together

We invest in companies of many shapes and sizes, but there are some commonalities:

Industries: Manufacturing, Distribution and Business Services

Size: EBITDA greater than $3 million

Motivations: Businesses in transition or looking for a growth partner; Owners hoping to achieve a full or partial exit; Management teams hoping to establish or increase their ownership in a business.

Enhancing Long-Term Value

When you decide the time is right, we will work directly with you to complete a transaction as efficiently and with as much discretion as possible. With your unique objectives in mind, together we will structure a transaction and develop a long-term strategy to ensure that our investment provides a superior outcome for you and your business.

After our investment, we will align our interests with existing management to support the company’s culture and values and to accelerate the growth of the business in a disciplined manner. We’ll collaboratively develop and execute a strategic plan and contribute our corporate finance expertise to best position your company for continued growth. And because we proactively build and maintain relationships with hundreds of businesses, we are uniquely capable of providing you an introduction to your next customer, supplier or strategic acquisition.

By working together to support growth, diversify the company, and reduce risk, we’ll enhance the company’s long-term value and support the culture that made it successful. No one knows your business and industry better than the people running the company, so we make them our partners in every investment. To us, partnership means ownership, so our goal is for everyone to share in the financial results of our collaborative success.

Last but not least, we believe that the best use of the cash flows of a business is to fund growth. To that end, we seek to ensure that our Partner Companies can support their growth objectives and therefore will not overburden them with debt. We don’t run the same playbook of other private equity firms – relying on high levels of debt and cost reductions to meet their investors’ expectations. Quite frankly, we think that approach jeopardizes the long-term success of a company. We invest in people, product lines, facilities and acquisitions to make our Partner Companies stronger both during and after their involvement with ORG.
