Long Point Capital was founded in 1998 to invest in outstanding founder, family, and management-owned companies with highly capable management teams and strong growth prospects. For owners who want to partner with us to continue to grow the value of their business, we provide significant up-front liquidity allowing them to diversify what is often one of their larger assets while retaining an ongoing ownership interest to continue to participate in the upside.
We focus on lower, middle market businesses, typically greater than $5 million of EBITDA, with leading positions in defensible markets, proven and sustainable value propositions, solid long-term industry fundamentals, and a history of stable earnings. We are primarily focused on businesses in professional services and opportunistically niche manufacturing, and distribution sectors.
We approach new investments and challenges with a “sleeves rolled up” approach. We work collaboratively and seek to customize transactions to meet the owner’s specific goals and offer expertly-designed tax-efficient solutions. Along with deep operational and industry expertise, we create alignment based on a foundation of common sense, trust, respect and integrity. Like the entrepreneurs we work with, we understand and value the importance of reputation. We seek to maintain quality, consistency and complement what has been established.
We are proud of our 20+ year track record and discipline across cycles. We are also proud of the long-standing relationships and partnerships built over this time who continue to endorse us as partners.
Long Point Peninsula is located on Lake Erie about 75 miles west of Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, about halfway between our metropolitan Detroit and New York City offices. The peninsula has a storied history beginning with early native tribes such as the Attiwandarons, Hurons and Iroqouis hunting and fishing in the game-rich marshes of Long Point. To guide Great Lakes shipping vessels, a series of lighthouses were built on Long Point. This lighthouse was built on the peninsula in 1916.
