track record of success and have been doing this since 1993.

We have immediate, ready access to our equity funds and can move much more quickly than other groups our size.

We have no sunset provisions for our investments, thus we can make the right decisions for the long term.

In addition, we believe in:

Letting Managers Manage

Stonewood is committed to helping management implement and execute growth strategies from the board level, without interference in the day-to-day operations of the business.

Helping Business Grow

In addition to its extensive experience in developing and implementing a wide range of growth strategies, Stonewood also has the follow-on capital necessary to fund those strategies when the need arises.

Providing Focus

Unlike most private equity funds, Stonewood has no sunset provisions on its investments, and no constituents who demand liquidity at any time certain. This permits Stonewood to encourage its portfolio companies to pursue growth strategies that are best for their businesses in the long term, rather than focusing on short term valuations.

Providing Flexible Options

Stonewood is flexible enough to work in almost any business situation. Stonewood’s executives have familiarity with the estate-planning, tax and other transitional requirements of existing owners, and this enables Stonewood to structure smooth, win/win transactions. While Stonewood is primarily an equity investor, Stonewood can supply other financial arrangements when necessary, such as subordinated debt. And although Stonewood normally prefers to retain existing management, Stonewood is willing to consider alternative arrangements if the circumstances require.
