Building on its principals’ track record with both large and small transactions and companies, Cambria invests equity in a wide array of situations — all characterized by the need and desire for an active equity investor.
Cambria is typically the lead investor in a transaction, but has also invested successfully alongside larger, like-minded private equity firms in situations requiring more capital than Cambria alone can provide. Typically, these are transactions Cambria has sourced or situations in which the lead sponsor seeks a value-added partner who can identify potential acquisition candidates for a company with an active acquisition program or who can add value on other dimensions.
The following types of investments are of particular interest to Cambria:
- Leveraged buyouts
- Management buyouts
- Industry consolidations
- Growth equity infusions
- Generational transfers of ownership
- Companies making strategic acquisitions
- Shareholder transitions, such as partner retirements or buyouts
- Restructurings of sound, profitable businesses
Cambria generally does not pursue any of the following:
- Startups or early stage companies
- Hostile acquisitions
- Project investments
