Silverhawk will review a variety of transaction opportunities that have attractive investment characteristics. Silverhawk seeks lower middle-market opportunities, and our investments will include acquisitions or recapitalizations of family owned business, acquisitions of divisions of larger corporations, and acquisitions of growth platform businesses.
Silverhawk has identified Growth Industrial, Energy/Natural Resources and Business Services as industry areas of focus for the fund. However, the partners of Silverhawk have a broad experience base in a variety of industries, and therefore on occasion will be opportunistic outside of these identified areas. Furthermore, Silverhawk benefits from Mark Demetree’s operating background as it seeks to partner with management teams to effect change in growing organizations.
Silverhawk will typically target investment sizes in the $10-$35 million range, in companies valued at less than $250 million. We do, however, have the ability to source equity for transactions requiring more capital.
