The firm’s Principal Investing Group sources, structures, finances and invests in promising companies requiring growth capital. Both majority and minority transactions will be considered.
Growth and Expansion Capital Focus
Cheverny’s believes that superior investment returns can be generated in the growth/expansion segment. These firms are generally too small to interest the amply-funded large buyout and traditional private equity firms, and too large for the average venture capital firm. Cheverny typically focuses on businesses with at least $10-$20mm in revenue and positive cash flows. The firm’s focus is on growth rather than on transactions where value is created through financial engineering.
Attractive Industries We Know & Understand
Cheverny has particular industry expertise and contacts in technology/media/telecom, energy (including clean energy and related technology and infrastructure, food/agro-industrial, emerging markets and specialty financial services). This is not to say that this list is exhaustive: but these are sectors where the firm believes it can offer demonstrable value-add. We have a disciplined, analytical approach to evaluating industries for investment. In general we target large and fragmented industries with secular or cyclical growth.
Network Of Partners
Cheverny has a network of co-investors, generally sophisticated family offices. These partners are located in Canada, Europe and the USA, and bring with them a wealth of experience and contacts.
Leveraging Experience & Relationships
Cheverny identifies, structures and invests in transactions that can leverage the experience of the firm’s partners. Great care is taken to avoid conflicts of interest with the firm’s advisory clients. Cheverny’s core group of partners bring >100 years of experience in private equity, M&A and financing.
Valuing Management Teams
Cheverny looks to partner with focused, determined management groups that wish to marry their demonstrable success with growth equity. Cheverny aims to invest in management teams and entrepreneurs that wish to grow their business.
