LARIAT PARTNERS STRATEGY

CORE INVESTMENT STRATEGY™

The CORE Investment Strategy™ targets COnsolidations, COnsumables and REcurring revenue businesses (REpair & maintenance, REplacement, REtrofit and REgulatory-driven industries). We have a strong preference for entrepreneur-managed companies that demonstrate outlier capabilities relative to their industry peers. This strategy allows us to concentrate on industries with specific attributes, giving us deep knowledge about a few industry niches and enhancing our competitive positioning within those niches. We target buy-and-build consolidation opportunities in fragmented industries as well as growth capital investments to execute an expansion strategy.

ADVISORY BOARD
ACCELERATION PROCESS™

Our unconventional approach to partnerships starts with the Advisory Board Acceleration Process™(ABAP™). This process builds Advisory Boards comprised of industry executives with directly relevant domain expertise for each partner company. Lariat Partners will seek to structure each board around the strategic needs of the CEO. By focusing on the CEO’s most essential strategic needs, the Advisory Board adds tremendous value directly to the partner company. We define “partnership” and focus on building relationships with the Entrepreneurs, spending time listening prior to finalizing the strategic direction.

INDUSTRY
PARTNER STRATEGY

In tandem with our Advisory Board Acceleration Process™, we help build a team of experienced industry partners comprised of former entrepreneurs, CEOs and C-Level Executives. These professionals have specific vertical/industry expertise and relationships to add value in ways that only experienced veterans can. Industry Partners will generally be focused on project-level work such as sales initiatives, acquisition integration, systems enhancements, and other similar work. Depending on the needs of each portfolio company, Lariat Industry Partners may or may not be members of portfolio company Advisory Boards.
