Our goal at Cynosure is to lead in the evolution of alternative assets and create a richer experience for our clients who want their alternatives to work for their investment portfolio rather than their investment portfolio working for their alternatives manager.
We identify investment opportunities with superior risk-adjusted returns sourced by utilizing our extensive network, to create proprietary deal-flow. We devote significant effort analyzing industry trends, understanding competitive landscapes and developing relevant expertise and investment themes to help achieve the return objectives of our investors.
Investment opportunities may include direct investments made by the firm or strategic partnerships, including forming or seeding new investment products with external managers that bring a complementary expertise to Cynosure.
We want to partner with management teams who are interested in continuing to be meaningful owners and are invested in seeing the value of their company grow. We look for partners who can collaborate with us on the best route to value creation over the right investment timeline, as opposed to some arbitrary exit deadline set by an investment fund.
Specifically, we look to invest in small to mid-sized companies with at least $5 million of EBITDA.
Targets for acquisition must demonstrate significant growth prospects, a meaningful cash flow profile, and the ability to differentiate their business model from that of its competition.
By investing throughout the capital structure, making minority as well as control investments, and providing long-term and or follow-on capital, we are able to differentiate ourselves from traditional alternative managers.
We have partnered with the following portfolio companies to provide a collaborative capital solution. We have been both in control and minority positions and will invest throughout the capital structure, including equity, preferred equity, subordinated debt, debt, and other creative structures.
