We do not subscribe to flawed short-term “paint by numbers“ financial models such as IRR, MOIC, etc. Rather, we look to achieve an averaged return on invested capital (AROI), evaluating (in order) investment opportunities on a case-by-case basis, based on…

  1. capital needs, short & long term

  2. current industry macro (growth) trends

  3. leadership team—strength & adaptability

  4. “critical mass” cash flow margins

  5. culture—sustainable & responsible?

  6. desired exit strategy—short term vs. long term, family repurchase vs. public sale, etc.
