Private Equity Financing Investment Criteria
The cash liquidity that a client can free up with Euro Credit's lending and financing services are free from use and other restrictions and can be put to any use. Nonetheless, we see certain common characteristics among the private equity investments that many of our clients have made.
In part, the third-party private equity advisors in the Euro Credit referral network do not use arbitrary parameters or limits to identify the right investments. They reject hard limits that blind less-savvy investors to real opportunities and, instead, seek to invest in companies that demonstrate a genuine potential for leadership in their respective industries with a strong and competent management team.
Our clients have used the liquidity that is available through our financing and lending services to invest in small and medium-sized enterprises that have a value of at least $50 million. We ally ourselves with private equity advisors that help clients evaluate each prospective investment to identify whether the enterprise offers high-quality and value-added products services. They further analyze growth prospects and conduct extensive due diligence on an enterprise’s management team. Their independent efforts identify management teams that have significant equity ownership positions in their enterprise, and that are open to increasing that position.The strongest private equity targets will be able to demonstrate a leading market share position with proven or high-potential disruptive technologies. Third-party advisors deliver the highest-value services when they uncover enterprises with proprietary concepts and brand name advantages that create intrinsic value and a sustainable competitive advantage. Those advisors are not limited by industry, but they frequently concentrate on industries with strong growth characteristics that are less subject to cyclical downturns and external disruptions.
