Commonwealth Capital Holdings, LLC
Through our investment arm, Commonwealth Capital Holdings, LLC, CCG provides private equity and mezzanine capital for businesses to enable an array of shareholder transactions or to facilitate growth or development projects.
CCG seeks to invest in businesses with market-leading or defensible niches in manufacturing or value-added distribution, generally targeting enterprises with revenues between $5 million and $30 million. In addition, CCG normally targets business generating at least $500k in operating income or EBITDA. As a crucial element of its investment strategy, CCG is committed to partnering with capable, experienced and motivated management teams, and assists its portfolio companies through active board oversight.
CCG prefers control investments, but minority investments will be pursued if circumstances warrant. Past transactions have included management buy-outs of both private businesses and subsidiaries of public companies, and CCG is also comfortable and familiar with opportunities relating to challenging family succession issues. CCG also seeks growth equity investments, especially in situations where the market knowledge and expertise of its principals have the potential to make a positive impact on the development and implementation of disciplined growth/expansion plans.
In contrast with many of today’s private equity investors, CCG partners are willing to “roll up the sleeves” and assist management teams in an array of business functions, including strategic planning, business development and capital planning, sales and marketing development, and the pursuit of external growth opportunities through mergers and acquisitions. Through collaborative partnerships with its management teams, CCG seeks to protect the competitive strengths of its portfolio companies while deepening their capabilities and working diligently to identify and pursue new markets and growth opportunities.
