We are growth investors. Our target size for a platform investment is $10 million to $50 million of equity in a company with $7 million to $50 million of EBITDA or free cash flow. Our ideal situation offers multiple opportunities to invest in growth as the foundation to our value creation principles. Growth affords scale advantages and valuation multiple expansion as an important source of equity appreciation. Internal growth initiatives include investments in capacity/technology, geographic expansion, new product development and human capital, most specifically in sales, marketing and product engineering.
In addition, Linsalata Capital Partners brings resources and experience to evaluate and execute add-on acquisitions that can complement and accelerate the internal growth initiatives. We do not believe in financial engineering as the primary basis of a sustainable investment philosophy. Instead, we look for and foster growing enterprises where we can partner with management to acheive even greater success.
