WHAT WE LOOK FOR

At Hawk Capital, we strive to invest in the highest quality lower middle market businesses and management teams. We prefer investing in well established businesses with world-class management teams, sustainable competitive advantages, strong and stable cash flows, moderate capital expenditure needs and industries/sectors that can weather cyclical downturns.

In general, we look to acquire businesses that have as many of the following characteristics as possible:

Stable and dependable cash flow, low indebtedness, a solid asset base that provides risk mitigation, a strong management team interested in remaining and becoming part of something larger, opportunity for strategic redirection, an unrealized market opportunity, and opportunity to improve operational performance.
