Investment Philosophy
Investment Philosophy Slides
AT CALERA CAPITAL we look for middle-market companies with proven management teams, sound business franchises, and substantial unrealized potential. We're interested in public or private companies, family-controlled enterprises and corporate divestitures in virtually any sector. Typically, we make substantial equity investments in operating companies with enterprise values up to $1 billion, looking to deploy between $50 and $250 million in each transaction.

Our focus is on businesses that are leaders in their market segments, have opportunities for strong organic revenue growth, and exhibit both attractive margins and high returns on tangible capital.

The most important investment criterion for Calera Capital is an outstanding and steadfast management team. We do not buy businesses from management teams – we partner with management teams to buy businesses. There is no better evidence of this than the fact that the founders and management teams of our portfolio companies have invested approximately $652 million of their own money alongside Calera Capital.
