Cebron Funds’ strategy is to acquire and consolidate companies in fragmented industries with strong operating histories, cash flow and significant growth potential. Once the combined companies reach a valuation threshold, they will either be taken public in an IPO or sold to a much larger financial or strategic acquirer.
Our investment approach is based on a comprehensive due diligence process that measures risk while identifying the drivers that increase value. We pursue friendly transactions and work with talented management teams to achieve maximum value. The returns that these investments can earn for our investors help to secure and build the assets needed to support growth.
We identify potential investments both through active origination and due diligence and through its dialogue with numerous management teams, members of the financial community and potential corporate partners. We have developed a broad network of contacts within the investment, commercial banking, private equity and investment management communities that enable us to attract well-positioned prospective portfolio companies.
We also generate information from the Cebron investment professionals’ network of accountants, consultants, lawyers and management teams of portfolio companies and other companies.
The objective of private equity is to seek attractive capital appreciation through investing in buyout, growth and special situations. Exit strategies include IPO and strategic buyers.
In making its investment decisions Cebron focuses on the risk/reward profile of each prospective portfolio company, seeking to minimize the risk of capital loss without foregoing potential for capital appreciation. We focus on reducing risk in investments by:
- focusing on companies with leading market positions and strong cash flow;
- engaging in extensive due diligence from the perspective of a long-term investor;
- investing at low price to cash flow multiples; and
- adopting flexible transaction structures by drawing on the experience of the investment professionals of Cebron and its affiliates.
