Private Equity

 

History

  • After successfully building a large Canada and US based industrial distribution business largely through organic growth and strategic acquisitions, the co-founders of R.I.I Equity Partners sold the distribution group of companies to a US based NYSE listed public company.

  • On April 24, 2014 R.I.I Equity Partners was formed with an objective to make strategic private equity investments in successful Canadian companies and to build shareholder value with our key management partners.

  • Several investments in established and successful private companies have been made since the firms inception, with additional capital available to expand the portfolio.

Focus

  • Our primary focus is making strategic investments in strong established companies with good growth potential, partnering with an experienced entrepreneurial management team who are passionate about the business and committed to its success. As a group we position the company to grow both organically and through acquisitions, with an ultimate objective to build meaningful scale and maximize shareholder returns.

Why us

  • We have significant experience and expertise with: developing key management and/or employee ownership plans, obtaining capital, optimizing capital structures, accounting, tax planning, legal matters, risk management and growing businesses in general. 

  • We start by establishing a strong management team with a vested interest in the business and then on optimizing capital allocation and capital structures to maximize the businesses growth potential. We also share 40+ years of combined experience developing best practices in successfully growing private businesses and building value for all shareholders.

  • We are flexible on hold periods and have the ability to hold these investments for the long term.

  • We have a proven track record of successfully developing the businesses that we have made investments in and building value for all shareholders.

Criteria

  • We like to partner with a capable management team who have a vested interest in the business and a strong desire to grow the company.
