We Invest More than Money.
WJ Partners adheres to a long-term commitment to mutual success and provides the guidance and necessary support to achieve shared goals. When we explore new partnerships, we want sellers to fully understand who we are and what they can expect. Three key investment philosophies inform our decisions.
A long-term investment outlook that does not rely on financial engineering and quick turnarounds to generate returns is central to WJ Partners’ mission. This approach allows us to work with management teams to develop and execute strategic plans that create sustained value. Our partners understand that our commitment, once made, is steadfast. Our operators manage their companies with confidence, free from the worry of subsequent ownership changes or shifting short-term goals.
RESPECT FOR MANAGEMENT
When parties share a vision, contribute unique resources, and cooperate efficiently, partnership can be a powerful and profitable vehicle. The ability to work closely with management teams is a critical component in WJ Partners’ evaluation process. We respect the expertise of executive teams who share our commitment to growth, and encourage their participation in meaningful equity (both stock option programs and roll-over equity) and incentive-based compensation programs.
WJ Partners does not seek to assume operational control of its investments. Rather, we work with existing management teams to:
- Determine fundamental business strategy.
- Identify and recruit key players to enhance the team.
- Oversee financing with lenders.
- Identify and execute add-on acquisitions.
