“Creating value others can’t by seeing what others don’t.”

Strategic Group’s Private Equity Team is active in small to mid-market equity, debt and mezzanine financing. We provide creative financing solutions for businesses in numerous industries and with various capital structures. We invest in both early stage and established enterprises by providing capital to or acquiring emerging market leaders with the promise of substantial future growth or proven businesses with a track record of success. We seek to partner with motivated entrepreneurs and management teams who are committed to executing their business plans.

We look for opportunities to create value in our investee companies not only by offering financial support, but also by providing analytical, managerial and strategic expertise. Our investee companies receive capital assistance in addition to essential business guidance. We employ rigorous business evaluation methods, robust investment analysis techniques and the creative and unconventional approach Strategic Group is known for. Our Private Equity Team is “Creating value others can’t by seeing what others don’t”, both for ourselves and for the businesses we invest in.

While we prefer opportunities which allow for vertical or horizontal integration with existing investments, our approach is industry agnostic. Our investments and portfolio companies span numerous industries including construction, building services, oilfield services, hospitality, pet care, agriculture, technology and corporate finance. We target investments in businesses with sustainable recurring revenue models, histories or prospects of generating stable free cash flows and the opportunity for an exit event within a two to five year time horizon. We utilize a variety of transaction structures to achieve our investment objectives and to support the businesses we partner with. If you have an opportunity you would like to discuss, please contact Strategic Group and ask to speak with a Team Member from our Private Equity Team.

 Below are just some of the businesses we’re proud to own or invest in.
