Unlike most other lower middle market private equity funds, Kirtland has the flexibility to make both control and minority investments to support a variety of situations, including buy-outs, growth capital investments, take private transactions, recapitalizations, corporate divestitures, and executive buy-and-build strategies.
We can structure our investments as majority or minority ownership, common or preferred equity, and have the ability to invest a portion of our capital as debt. This flexibility allows us to provide owners/entrepreneurs and management teams with a tailored capital solution that best fits their objectives and the needs of the company.
As a minority investor, we seek opportunities to partner with business owners and management teams to support growth and achieve personal and business goals. This investment flexibility allows business owners to retain a controlling interest in their businesses while bringing on an experienced and value-added partner.
An illustration of Kirtland’s flexibility and value-add is the build-up of Precision Dialogue.
