Littlejohn Capital’s Investment Philosophy and Approach is based on a pragmatic assessment of the opportunity. If a company’s existing business is based on sound fundamentals, we will develop a strategy and operational plans that will allow it to achieve world class benchmarks. We embrace common sense values and strive to conduct ourselves with integrity. We maintain an active two-way dialogue that allows management teams to access all resources of our organization, whether the principals’ operating or investment experience, that of our past and existing CEOs, or that of our third party advisors and consultants many of whom have been our partners for over twenty years. Our value added approach includes assisting management in the development of strategic plans, financial systems, operating metrics, growth initiatives and marketing, new product development, and add-on acquisitions.
As long term investors we act as “owners” and believe in prudently capitalizing our companies so they can invest in future growth – whether personnel, new product development or new production facilities.
Although we ensure that management has the authority and scope to independently manage its business, we are active investors and develop a close partnership to make sure that the team has access to the combined experience of the organization.
