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 do better. All of them are benefiting from their partnership with Monomoy.

At Monomoy, we are not deterred by complicated deals that give other buyers pause. 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 $100 million or more in annual sales, including businesses in manufacturing, industrial, distribution, and consumer products.

We can make investments of up to $150 million in companies with up to $500 million in enterprise value.

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

Once we buy a business, we often look for transformative add-on acquisitions.
