Stonewood Capital Management, Inc. is a Pittsburgh-based private equity firm seeking investment opportunities primarily with manufacturing, assembly, or distribution companies with $1 to $10 million in EBITDA.
Stonewood’s executives have experience with many types of transactions, but specialize in making acquisitions in partnership with experienced management teams.
The managers supply the business skills necessary to move the company forward, and Stonewood adds value by helping craft strategies for growth and margin improvement as well as assisting management teams with legal and financial issues that arise in the business.
Each of Stonewood’s executives is well versed in a wide range of creative transaction structures and, as a result, Stonewood is able to be a highly flexible investment partner. Stonewood is comfortable participating as both equity investor and subordinated debt provider when appropriate to make transactions easier to finance and close.
Stonewood offers those in search of capital an unusual advantage because it is managed by a small group of executives charged with investing the private equity component of a large private investment portfolio, and as a result Stonewood is free to make both initial and follow-up investments without the approval of an outside board of investors.
This means that Stonewood can serve the interests of everyone involved with maximum flexibility and minimal delay. More importantly, it means that Stonewood can invest in businesses for the long term, without undue concern for short term performance.
Additionally, Stonewood’s executives have an extensive network of investors, bankers, lawyers, accountants and business managers who can be valuable sources of expertise to Stonewood’s portfolio companies.
In addition to capital, Stonewood brings both a lasting commitment and a wealth of practical business knowledge to each venture.
