Our investment strategy is to build a concentrated portfolio of leading consumer-oriented businesses.
We believe we can add substantial value by partnering with the management teams of companies in the food & beverage, household & consumer products, personal care/health & wellness, and consumer services sectors.
An ideal investment candidate would be a strong player in its consumer niche with leading or low-cost market positions and enduring products or services. We are very comfortable with branded or private label opportunities, and those that require operational improvement, brand revitalizations and longer investment horizons. Our typical equity investment will range from $50 million to $150 million, although, for the right opportunity, we will invest more or less. Given our desired investment size, most of our portfolio companies will have EBITDA in excess of $15 million. To date we have made both majority and minority investments in companies with EBITDA in the range of $10 million to $1.5 billion. However, Centerview will only invest in opportunities where we believe we can partner with management to materially improve operations.
