Private equity firm focused on profitable growth companies in the US and Canada
Symmetric Capital is a private equity firm focused on profitable growth companies in the US and Canada. With the flexibility to invest in either minority or majority positions, Symmetric structures transactions that meet both the immediate and the longer-term objectives of owners and managers – all without changing the company’s entrepreneurial culture or introducing excessive debt that restricts growth. Symmetric’s principals have built dozens of successful, collaborative partnerships over the past twenty years, beginning in each case with an equity investment to fund growth, shareholder liquidity, debt repayment, a management-led buyout or the acquisition of a competitor. Symmetric targets companies with at least $10 million in revenues and $2 million in operating profits. Sectors of interest include business services, logistics, financial services, healthcare services, consumer and industrial products, software, and technology-enabled services. With over $200 million in committed capital in their active funds, Symmetric typically invests $5-20 million in each company. Larger transactions can be funded in partnership with their limited partners or with other co-investors.
