Since 2007, Laurel Capital Partners has been investing in reasonably valued smaller companies.

 

OVERVIEW

Laurel Capital Partners focuses on growth equity and buyout investments in business services, financial services, healthcare, aviation services, and specialty manufacturing companies located principally in the eastern half of the United States. The firm will pursue both control and non-control transactions to provide liquidity to shareholders, financing for management buyouts, and capital for growth.


Laurel will invest in reasonably-valued, profitable, smaller businesses - those with revenues of between $5 and $50 million and EBITDA of up to $5 million. Within these parameters, the Firm will focus on companies with platform potential - unique assets and capabilities that, when combined with capital as well as outside expertise, make accelerated growth possible.
