Our Investment Focus.
WJ Partners focuses on lower middle-market businesses with significant growth opportunities, targeting companies with less than $10 million in EBITDA. WJ Partners considers promising opportunities across the country. While WJ Partners invests across a wide range of industries, our investment professionals have significant expertise and interest in the following areas:
- Business and Professional Services
- Consumer Products and Services
- Specialty Finance
- Industrial Services
Characteristics We Seek
- Principled, dedicated leaders who think like owners with a strong equity incentive to grow the company’s long-term value.
- Established, proven, and scalable business model.
- Clear and attainable growth opportunities.
- Sustainable and extendable competitive position in a stable or growing industry with strong barriers to entry.
- Strong free cash flow characteristics including low capital expenditure and working capital requirements.
WJ Partners does not invest in real estate, high-tech start-ups, early stage companies without a proven track record of profitability, or operational turnarounds. We do, however, consider investing in companies requiring an equity infusion due to excessive leverage.
