PVSI Investment Situations

Investment Situations and Characteristics

PSVI capital may be used for a number of purposes including:

  • Purchasing a family or partner owned business
  • Assisting one partner to buy out another
  • Facilitating an acquisition of another business or fixed assets
  • Financing growth, expansions or projects
  • Facilitating a corporate restructuring, shareholder reorganization or management buyout
  • A leveraged recapitalization by a business owner
  • A company divesting a non-strategic business unit

Of greatest interest are established businesses. As a rule PSVI does not seek investments in start-ups or new technology ventures.

Typically businesses have a history of cash flow and EBITDA, revenues in excess of $2 million and the ability to attract quality management and personnel.

Financing requirements typically range from $0.5 - $10 million; however PSVI will consider transactions requiring greater amounts of capital under appropriate circumstances. PSVI targets companies based in the Pacific Northwest.
