We offer business owners flexible succession options, where we purchase a minority or majority stake, and opportunities for continued involvement in the company. Unlike most private equity funds, we have a buy, grow and hold strategy. We wish to own businesses for the long term, ideally forever, with business partners who share a similar philosophy.
We see the entrepreneur who entrusts his or her business to us as our business partner. We promise to steward their business as best we can, and we invite them to co-invest in other opportunities with us. Our goal is to make you more, after we close, than what was made in the deal itself.
We provide privately-held business owners equity to fund succession or growth opportunities. We look for businesses that have:
Honest, capable and hardworking management.
Established and consistent cash flow.
Durable competitive advantages.
Identifiable and compelling growth opportunities.
A reasonable valuation.
We focus on companies with EBITDA of $1 million to $7 million, and revenues between $5 million and $50 million, though we are flexible for the right opportunities.
Our core industry focus includes industrial manufacturing, consumer products, technology enabled services, warehousing/distribution, real estate and financial services. However, we are open to opportunities in other industries. We do not invest in start-ups, resource-driven businesses or cutting-edge technologies.

Why use Promerita? While our capital pools include financial institutions, we take a decidedly non-institutional approach. As entrepreneurs ourselves, we think in terms of creating optimal partnerships. Often flexibility and creativity are paramount to reaching a great deal and the right capital partner can make the difference. Beyond the deal, we provide value through relationships, matching people and opportunities to the right types of capital.
