Profile

Silverhawk will review a variety of transaction opportunities that have attractive investment characteristics. Silverhawk seeks middle-market opportunities, and our investments will include acquisitions or recapitalizations of family owned business, acquisitions of divisions of larger corporations, and acquisitions of growth platform businesses.

Silverhawk has identified Growth Industrial, Energy/Natural Resources and Business Services as industry areas of focus for the fund. However, the partners of Silverhawk have a broad experience base in a variety of industries, and therefore on occasion will be opportunistic outside of these identified areas. Furthermore, Silverhawk benefits from Mark Demetree’s operating background as it seeks to partner with management teams to effect change in growing organizations.

Silverhawk has the ability to execute investments in the $25-$175 million range, in companies valued at up to $1 billion.

Approach

Silverhawk’s investment approach is to support talented management teams with growth capital during periods of business strength and weakness, and to work as hard as possible to make each investment successful for management and Silverhawk’s investors. In each investment, Silverhawk strives to assist its management teams by leveraging off past experiences with former portfolio companies, and industry contacts, as well as provide advice on acquisitions, divestitures and shareholder value creation. Silverhawk’s Operating Partner, Mark Demetree, provides a valuable contribution through his experience as a manager and leader of a number of industrial businesses.

Upon realization of each investment, our goal is for every portfolio management team to remember Silverhawk as a partner that was consistently supportive, extremely hard-working and more than fair in all aspects of the manager/investor relationship.
