Transaction Criteria

With every investment, we seek to redefine value. That value extends far beyond our investment of capital and is reflected in our partnerships, our proven track record and our passion for building world-class businesses.

When assessing prospective investments, Monitor Clipper Partners looks for companies with the following characteristics:

Size
We target equity investments of $10 - $70 million per transaction, although we will make smaller or larger investments depending on the circumstances. This typically describes businesses with between $5 million and $20 million of pre-tax profits.

Stage of Development
MCP typically invests in companies that are already profitable. We can provide growth capital to grow a business, or our capital can be used to purchase a business from its existing owners. We do not invest in venture capital opportunities.

Structure
The firm generally makes control investments, though it will consider minority investments in specific settings.

Geography
MCP pursues investments principally in North America and Western Europe. We have completed transactions in the United States, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain.

Industry Focus
MCP pursues transactions in a wide variety of industries, but has particular expertise and interest in businesses in the following sectors: natural/organic foods, specialty retail, health care services, gaming, metals, logistics and financial services/financial services technology.
