FMMC Buyout Fund makes equity investments in profitable, privately-owned businesses, primarily in Canada and the northeastern United States, that have exceptional medium-to-long term growth potential. We look for opportunities with Enterprise Values of between $5 and $50 million where we can own a meaningful stake, generally 25% to 100%, and where our involvement is viewed as a value-enhancer by the existing owners. We seek to understand the needs and objectives of the current owners and tailor a solution that meets those needs, while offering an attractive risk adjusted return for our investors. We are equally comfortable owning a minority stake in partnership with an existing owner-operator, or in buying the majority of the business and helping the owner-operator work towards being able to retire from the active day-to-day of operating the business.
While we love to find outstanding businesses with a complete senior management team who only need financial capital to realize their growth objectives, we more usually find that businesses in our target market have human capital constraints as well. Helping to address those constraints, whether it is a specific area of expertise such as post-acquisition systems integration or expert understanding of sales & marketing ROI, or whether it is augmenting the team with one of our operating partners on a full time basis, is one of the key success factors we can bring to the table.
We have assembled an outstanding team of seasoned senior executives as our operating partners that are committed to invest both their money and their time along-side us, and can thus bring to bear expertise in a variety of areas of business that is not typically available to small business owners.
