40|73 Capital is an entrepreneurial private equity firm designed to not only provide capital and strategic advice but also collaborate with management to drive growth and optimize performance of lower-middle market firms. We aim to invest in a limited number of platform companies so that we devote substantial resources to building each business. We believe our distinct strategic-operational investment approach will result in measurable value creation.

40|73 Capital seeks to invest in leveraged buyouts and recapitalizations of companies focused on the consumer, industrials, and services sectors. Middle-market companies often reach a plateau in performance or juncture in their life cycle where the next level of growth may require outside resources. Furthermore, owners have significant wealth held in their business and often want to derisk or rebalance their investment holdings prior to executing significant new growth initiatives or have other understandable reasons for pursuing a liquidity event. We augment management capabilities to help companies break through or stave off a plateau in performance and assist owners in achieving liquidity. We have proven experience taking measured debt and equity investment risks across product, credit, and business cycles, benefiting key stakeholders. 

Beyond capital, we generate value for select companies by leveraging a cadre of entrepreneurs, executives, and advisors to collaborate with management on value enhancement initiatives. As an integral part of the team, we measurably upgrade company performance by actively improving key value drivers such as sales & marketing, customer retention, new services, product development & innovation, brand positioning & development, new growth initiatives, product pricing & product sku optimization, strategic partnership development, supply chain & inventory management, business process improvement, and organizational development which will result in dramatically enhanced revenue growth and cash flow generation.

Our ability to reach targeted goals will be enhanced by ensuring alignment among managers, investors, and other critical parties. Appropriate alignment and resource identification should enable management to pursue their day-to-day responsibilities in concert with new value creation initiatives. We believe combining the resources of leading private capital and top entrepreneurial talent will allow companies to chart a path to growth and result in attractive risk-adjusted returns.
