747 Capital’s investment thesis is simple.
We believe that our focus on the small-cap market presents the greatest opportunity to capitalize on inefficiencies in the buyout space.
There is a vast supply of high-quality businesses, which can be acquired at reasonable prices, outside of competitive auction processes.
With smaller business there are greater opportunities for experienced fund managers to create value, generate growth and enhance these businesses through applying their operational expertise.
Once enhanced, our underlying managers are able to sell their portfolio companies via efficient auction-driven transactions to larger private equity funds or strategic acquirers.
747 Capital seeks to meet with every small-cap buyout fund in its market.
The typical small-cap buyout fund targeted by 747 Capital will
