Investment criteria

We help middle market businesses build for tomorrow

Investment parameters
Transaction types
  • Majority equity ownership positions in high-quality lower and middle market companies
  • We often partner with family, entrepreneur and employee-owned businesses. We are also interested in corporate carve-outs and companies owned by financial sponsors
  • North American Focus
Company size
  • EBITDA of $10 to $75M at initial investment
  • We are interested in add-on acquisitions to our existing platform investments. Add-ons can be of any size or geography

Wind Point investments possess a combination of the following characteristics:

  • Strong culture and values
  • Secure competitive position
  • History of growth in an attractive market
  • Recession resilient and inflation-protected
  • Strong free-cash-flow and margin profile
  • Opportunities for strategic M&A (e.g. fragmented industry or actionable acquisition targets)

Wind Point will often make significant investments to support a company’s growth, including hiring additional management talent to augment the existing team. We believe we are also well-suited to solve CEO succession given our executive-oriented partnership model.
