Investment Criteria

Altos invests $10 million to $80 million of subordinated debt, preferred equity and common equity in exchange for significant minority ownership positions or controlling stakes in its portfolio companies.

Platform Companies

We focus on the energy, environmental, and general industrial sectors of the economy.  Ideal companies generate $25 million to $250 million of revenue, are privately owned by individual partnerships or families, and can benefit from the involvement of an Altos operating general partner who serves as chairman or lead director.  We generally require our seller-partners to make material roll-over investments of equity and to commit to transition companies from entrepreneurial to professional management strategies.

Add-on Acquisitions

Altos seeks add-on acquisitions for our portfolio companies in order to expand geographic reach, broaden product or service offerings, and integrate supply chain.
