We believe our considerable working knowledge and experience differentiates us from other financial partners, as the majority of HCI’s senior team have been a CEO, President or CFO of an industrial business during their careers.
We prefer to be the first institutional capital for family- and founder-owned businesses and we seek to partner with proven management teams who share our long-term growth vision and wish to retain a stake in the company post-transaction. This alignment of interests from both a strategic and financial perspective are critical elements in creating the foundation for a successful investment. In our experience, a strong partnership with management enhances the ability to achieve our collective goals.
We support businesses looking for succession planning, those that need capital to move forward in terms of growth or operating executives with a thesis in a fragmented market.
We seek to create significant operational value within our platform investments by assisting with major operational initiatives, enhancing financial reporting and IT capabilities, expanding geographically, diversifying product mix and adding depth to management teams as needed.
We strive to create industry leading companies by bolstering organic growth with add-on acquisitions. Our team assists in identifying, sourcing and integrating add-on acquisitions and aims to unlock value created by synergies. We have completed 40+ add-on acquisitions on over 30 platforms since 2003.
