Our professional passion is working with owner-managers in maximizing the value of their companies. We focus on stable companies with sustainable cash flows and proven business models that have potential for growth, whether organically or by way of acquisitions. The common denominator in all our investments is a driven, entrepreneurial, management team. CFB® is committed to backing exceptional entrepreneurs who have the vision, drive, and talent to be leaders within their industries. We understand the enormous effort required to create a successful business and stand ready to provide our portfolio companies with assistance in strategic planning, mergers and acquisitions, customer acquisition, general business management, executive recruiting, and raising additional capital. Our success is a direct function of our portfolio companies' success, therefore we strive to provide our management team partners with all the tools and resources they need to succeed.
At CFB® we understand that growing an exceptional business is a lengthy, complex process with many unexpected twists and potential pitfalls. Accordingly, we are a patient investor, investing with a typical time horizon of between five and seven years depending on the particular circumstances. We also invest with the mindset that growth requires additional capital and within our funds we maintain adequate reserves to meet any follow-on investment needs. We maintain an extensive network of contacts in the financial markets and in particular the private equity community, and can assist our portfolio companies by bringing additional experts, advisors, or investors into a transaction.
