The V&A Difference

V&A invests in companies with leading market positions, stable cash flows and established track
records of successful growth. However, V&A does not shy away from companies that:
  • Are transitioning from owner-operated companies or experiencing management changes.
  • Are experiencing temporary financial or operational performance challenges.
  • Have lower than average gross margins but are trending positively.
  • Have an element of cyclicality but are niche leaders in their market segments.
  • Have potential legacy liabilities such as pension or other post-employment benefits.
  • Serve end-markets that are out of favor in the mainstream investor community.

Investment Strategy

V&A uses a partnership approach with management teams to develop and implement strategic plans
to accelerate growth and increase shareholder value by:
  • Sourcing, negotiating and executing complementary add-on acquisitions.
  • Taking a long-term, patient and focused approach to business challenges.
  • Providing operational support by implementing lean processes and productivity improvements, executing growth initiatives, enhancing management infrastructure, etc.

Investment Philosophy

V&A assists the management of its portfolio companies to achieve their objectives by:
  • Supporting management’s organic growth initiatives by providing financial and human capital.
  • Providing access to operating executives with industry specific expertise and connections.
  • Aligning management’s interests with ours by providing an opportunity to co-invest and structuring equity incentive plans.
