Hartenberg targets established businesses with strong market positions, clear competitive advantages and significant potential for future sales and earnings growth, within industries that are consolidating, growing or changing and can demonstrate well-defined realization alternatives.
An ideal company for us will:
- generate a strong cash flow;
- have a proven management team with motivation to grow the business;
- be in an industry that is consolidating or changing;
- be a good platform for further growth and acquisitions.
It is key for us before becoming owners to ensure that management, and sometimes co-investors, share the same view on how to move the company forward.
