us, making investments means adding
value through individual expertise,
thoughtful teamwork and invaluable
associations. We view ourselves
as a partner
to the company we invest in and
become committed to achieving
We emphasize a global
to investing. The world is increasingly
interconnected and thus we discuss
worldwide markets and international
influences. To maximize the impact
of the interconnected, yet boundaryless
opportunities, we have assembled
a world-class investment team
and advisors with the ideal balance
of investment, entrepreneurial
and operational expertise. Together,
we actively source, select the
right companies and help grow
them into market leaders.
Our deals share some basic features:
we provide equity investment in
businesses with predictable cash
flows and strong management. The
capital structure of our investment
companies depends on the strategy
for value creation, which is jointly
developed by management and Crossover.
We work with our portfolio companies
to design and execute plans for
improving management, marketing
and operations. Over time, generally
around four years, we exit our
investments through IPOs, sale
to strategic buyers, or M&A.
Upon exit, profits are distributed
to our investors, which include
funds and high networth individuals
Our investments range in size
from $2 to $20 million. Typically,
we invest $3 to $5 million initially
and expect to invest $5 to $15
million over the life of a company.
