We invest in People and Teams.
“Bill, Sam, Justin and Tony built lasting relationships with the entire Bush team. We were able to trust them to follow through on the commitments they made to our people during a period of transformative growth for our Company.”
“The Lorraine team immersed themselves in understanding our culture and people. It was empowering working toward shared goals with partners who took the time to gain context, not only on our company and opportunities, but about our people.”
“Finding the right partner to help me take the company I founded to levels beyond what I thought was possible was so important. My partners at Lorraine Capital helped me transform my company and team. The mutual trust we have is truly unique.”
“Sam, Tony, Justin and Bill provided our team the mentorship, collaboration, and resources we needed to build something truly special. They trusted us to conceive of and execute bold strategies, understanding and supporting us through the risks along the way.”
“As our company grew tremendously, we knew we needed a partnership to share our vision and help bring the resources to get there. Meeting and collaborating with the Lorraine team gave us confidence to transact with them, especially knowing how important the partnership would be for us moving forward.”
“We’d interacted with other prospective partners before Lorraine, but what stood out to us when we met their team was their follow through. They focused on communicating transparently and on doing what they said they’d do throughout. For us, this helped drive the decision to team with Lorraine.”
We bring resources and relationships to achieve sustainable growth.
The Lorraine Advantage
Prior to founding Lorraine, each of our Principals operated and successfully exited companies across a spectrum of industries; we approach everything grounded in understanding the challenges of owning and profitably operating a business, caring about employees, and developing team members.
As partners at Lorraine, we have successfully acquired, operated, and responsibly exited lower middle market businesses. Earning trust from seller partners and management teams lays the foundation for future shared successes. We work collaboratively with executive teams to chart aligned strategies, enhance and build key business practices, introduce value-add relationships, and ensure our companies have the people and resources needed to grow transformationally.
Our structure uniquely enables us to offer flexibility in designing transactions tailor-made to each seller’s unique context. Succession planning achieved through a creatively-structured Lorraine transaction, building the next wave of company leadership, can provide significant value to family-owned businesses and closely held partnerships. We have acquired several growing companies across five platforms in the areas of e-commerce, healthcare, manufacturing, distribution, and global sourcing.
Lower-middle market companies, typically:
- $25M – $150M in Revenue
- $3M and greater EBITDA
More broadly than strict financial criteria or specific, limited industries, we focus qualitatively on good opportunities where we can add value.
Compelling market opportunities, visionary, ethical leadership, proven ability to build transformative value for customers, and unique go-to-market strategies have underpinned our past successful acquisitions.
