Investment Criteria

Monomoy invests in industrial, distribution and consumer businesses that truly matter to their suppliers, customers and employees. Our companies make a difference in the markets they serve. Some face daunting challenges. Others are doing well but could benefit from our operational expertise in order to accelerate their earnings growth and grow their business to the next level.

We are skilled at navigating complicated deals that deter other buyers. We can close difficult, multi-party transactions in as little as 30 days, without financing contingencies. We can buy businesses through simple asset or stock sales or through more complex transactions.

We work hard to involve management, employees, vendors and customers in every acquisition. Above all, we value simplicity, transparency and integrity at every stage of the acquisition process. We do what we say we are going to do, and we work hard to be the best possible transaction partner.

Monomoy’s primary focus is on middle-market companies with enterprise values up to $600 million in manufacturing, distribution, and consumer businesses.

We typically own our businesses in partnership with senior management or other strategic investors.

Once we buy a business, our team works hand-in-hand with management in order to generate cash and improve EBITDA, increasing value for our stakeholders.
