Investment Type

Rockwood Capital will seek to take an equity stake in companies that it invests in with a view to holding these investments over the medium to long term. The favoured type of investments fall into 4 broad categories:

Financial Restructuring - in the current challenging environment, more and more viable companies are finding themselves in the position where they need to radically change their financial structure in order to secure their current and long term future. Examinership is one option that companies are increasingly pursuing to restructure their financial and corporate affairs. Rockwood Capital provides expertise and finance to restructure companies and return them to stability and growth.

Sale of a Business or a percentage of a Business - the owner of a business may wish to sell or retire out of their business now or over a number of years. Rockwood Capital actively seeks to purchase and takeover the running of these businesses. Rockwood can structure these transactions to meet the needs and have a defined exit strategy for the current owner. Rockwood will also take a percentage shareholding in a business where a shareholder wishes to divest their shareholding.

Management Buy Out (MBO) - Rockwood Capital will in conjunction with the current management team seek to form a consortium to buy out the company from the current shareholders. In effect these transactions are structured as a Buy In by Rockwood Capital and a Management Buy Out by the current management team. Due to multinational retrenchment, parent companies are increasingly seeking to sell local subsidiaries and Rockwood is actively seeking to partner with current management teams to exploit these opportunities.

Expansion Capital - profitable companies are finding it difficult to gain access to funds to expand their companies both domestically and on the international stage. Rockwood Capital provides the finance and leverages their expertise and contact base to enable client companies to sustain and enhance their growth.
