We remain convinced that the bulk of opportunities remain in undervalued and unloved, underperforming smaller companies that represent average or slightly above average businesses. To elevate these companies to their true potential, it takes vision, experience, and a well-rounded team with simple yet effective strategies - the foundation of our philosophy at Camwood.
We have a unique understanding that a desk is a dangerous place to view the world, and financial engineering by itself does not position our companies and our employees for success for the next 10 to 20 years.
If business were about crunching numbers in a spreadsheet, we would all be rich. As seasoned operators, we know that success in this field is about evaluating people and being a good judge of character. With a long-term focus, we can accomplish amazing things together.
Finances aren't everything. It takes quality management and operations experience to make an acquisition and the resulting transition a success for all parties involved. And that's what you get when you work with our team.
We've been at this for over forty years and we will be at it for at least forty more. We take care of you and your partners, employees, managers, and other team members, throughout the duration of our relationship.
We foster a results oriented mindset, and an attitude aimed solely at increasing the inherent value of the underlying business. This produces positive bottom-line effects that resonate throughout the entire company.
A buyout is not merely a simple transaction where buyer meets seller. It is the beginning of a long relationship that requires nurturing, discipline, sharing, and accountability. The closing of a transaction is only the beginning of a long process of creating value by continually improving and operating successfully for many years.
From initial contact, to closing and thereafter, the Camwood team and our affiliates are intimately involved in all aspects of the business, be it operationally, financially, or otherwise. We spend a significant amount of time, effort, and our own resources working with and alongside our management teams and employee groups to continually build value in our companies.
