Continental Capital is a private equity investment group that invests in and acquires privately-owned companies in North America. Our investments are made in traditional economy manufacturing, distribution and service businesses with revenue between $10 and $200 million. We also actively pursue information technology companies (hardware, software and services).
Post-acquisition, we provide management teams with the capital and relationships that enable expansion into new product lines and markets and profitably grow the business. The firm, collectively with its investors and advisors, benefits from deep experience in business operations, market entry and growth strategy development, and private company investing. Continental's principals come from a complementary mix of operating, legal, management consulting and finance backgrounds.
Continental Capital is differentiated among private equity firms by its long-term investing perspective. While other firms typically seek to exit investments in two to six years, Continental is building a portfolio of companies it intends to hold and grow over an extended period.
We believe that smaller companies in fragmented, mature industries have a tremendous opportunity for double-digit growth if armed with the right combination of product planning, market aggressiveness, strategic partnerships, financial resources, operational excellence and a motivated employee base. Continental Capital helps bring these pieces together.
