how we invest


We've refined our strategy for building long-term equity value through more than 20 years of disciplined, impact investing. Our approach focuses both on improving operational efficiencies within individual businesses, and strengthening synergies among members of our portfolio ecosystem.

Industry Focus

Core investment areas include online brand management, emerging technologies (including public health, energy and environmental technologies), hospitality and digital entertainment.




Startups and Going-Concerns

We target startup ventures and operating businesses, including divisions, subsidiaries, or individual plants of larger companies that could operate as stand-alone entities.

Equity Capital

We generally invest in common stock or in securities convertible into common stock, including preferred stock securities. We may extend loans in connection with obtaining control through acquisition, and may also consider Debtor-In-Possession (DIP) financing.




Profitability

We often consider businesses with a history of operating losses. Indeed, most of our portfolio companies were not profitable at the time of our investment.




Control

The Paliwoda Group is a control investor. We often nominate most members of the board of directors since we generally own a majority of a company's common stock; but we are also flexible about the size of our economic ownership of a company as long as we maintain control.




Bankruptcy or Default

We may consider businesses operating in default of obligations to creditors, and may sponsor a plan of reorganization for a debtor-in-possession pursuant to a plan of reorganization in Chapter 11 bankruptcy or through a Section 363 asset sale.




Geography

We generally target companies headquartered and operating primarily in the United States and Canada.
