Strategic Partnership Opportunities
We are looking for companies where our extensive global network can be leveraged to provide new markets, customers, capabilities or assets for the company.
Benefit from Access to Public Markets
Our target companies will have a real need to access the public markets, either for additional capital or for the public currency to complete acquisitions or for other strategic opportunities.
