Focus on the long term with the ability to exit at any time
- Hold periods have ranged from two to twenty years
- We are driven by maximizing the value of the business versus meeting a specific IRR or other metric
- We hold investments until our management partners desire to exit
We met the Anderson Group when we were seeking a sponsor to support a management buyout of our business from its corporate parent. From the onset, we saw in Anderson an opportunity to not only secure capital but a strategic partner that can assist us as we transition from a corporate division to a stand-alone business. It took only two meetings for us to realize that Anderson was the partner we were seeking. At our second meeting, which took place in an airport lounge, we solidified the terms of a deal on a napkin. For over twenty years, Anderson has stuck to the terms or our agreement, assisted us in developing our strategic long- and short-term growth plans, and mentored us as we moved forward. I look back and smile at what a tremendous partnership this has been and continues to be. I would have never thought I was gaining a partner for more than two decades. It has been an incredibly rewarding and enjoyable journey.
