private equity investors say they are “value-added”,
but few have the resources, expertise, and approach to be a strategic partner to management. Parthenon Capital does.
Capital Partners Full Potential approach is unique
in the private equity industry. It is the framework through
which we offer the benefits of both a strategic and financial
partner to the companies in which we invest. It is how we can
provide resources and expertise to supplement your existing team,
if and when you ask. In short, it puts into practice our philosophy
of being a true, value-added partner to management in order
to help companies achieve their Full Potential.
Specifically, the tenets of Parthenon's Full Potential approach are the following:
- It begins with
management. The cornerstone of our investment approach is to
invest in partnership with exceptional management teams that
have great ambitions for their businesses. We seek to deeply
understand, support, and complement those ambitions.
are engaged. We believe your business deserves more
from a private equity investor than an occasional phone call
or semi-annual Board visit. Parthenon’s professionals limit
their focus to a few companies so we can understand your business
deeply and respond when you need us. For CEOs that may feel “lonely
at the top”, we can provide you the value of
an involved partner.
- We provide complementary
experience. PCP has deep knowledge in the industries
in which we invest, enabling us to understand a management
team’s vision for its company.
We additionally bring decades of experience in
supporting companies through rapid growth and accessing
the necessary capital to capture that growth.
- We provide a wealth
of resources and expertise. Parthenon can provide companies
with resources and expertise to which they might not normally
have access. Whether it is in debt financing, market strategy,
accounting, executive search, add-on acquisitions, operations,
or any other business area, we have the experts to assist your
team when you want us.
- We are not in the way. We understand the fine line between being supportive and being
in the way. We offer resources and expertise to our portfolio
companies on a supplemental basis if and when they request
it, not in a prescribed or heavy-handed way. We are not operating executives who will second-guess your management decisions.
We believe that the
only way to truly appreciate PCP's
Full Potential approach is by hearing from management teams
that have worked with us as partners. We invite you to
