We are a private equity firm providing capital for LBOs, MBOs, recapitalizations, consolidations and growth. Though we are the lead investor in the majority of our investments, we will co-invest with other lead investors who share our investment philosophy.

Below are the general criteria that guide our investment decisions:

  • Strong operating management teams motivated by significant equity incentives.
  • Middle market companies with revenues of $15 to $100 million ($3 million if add-on acquisition) in fragmented service and manufacturing industries.
  • Companies with proven ability to generate stable, growing cash flows.
  • Companies with prominent positions in niche markets, proprietary products and services, or high engineering and/or service content.
  • Opportunity for profit growth through operating leverage.
  • The Company should serve as either a new operating platform or add-on acquisition/product line extension to existing Saugatuck-owned company.
  • No high tech, real estate, or financial businesses.
  • No start-ups or early stage investments.
  • No turnarounds.
