Battery Point Capital is an investment-oriented family office, formed to make control-oriented buyout investments in established lower middle-market U.S. companies as well as earlier stage, fast growing companies that are not yet profitable.
Battery Point Capital pursues investments in privately-owned businesses that differentiate themselves through product and process innovation in stable or evolving markets and that exhibit either strong cash flow or rapid revenue growth. As a family office, we are not driven by specific investment terms or liquidity needs which allows us to focus on the long term success of our partners.
We prefer to make growth equity investments, both minority and control, in the following company types:
- US-based companies in the following sectors: Manufacturing & Distribution, Business Services, Food & Beverage, Software, Technology and Technology-enabled Services, and Digital Media & Advertising.
- Software Companies: we invest in growing (generally bootstrapped) software companies with developed business models and demonstrated growth potential. We look for recurring revenues, high gross margins, high customer life time value and low customer churn. While we focus on growth potential rather than company size, we generally invest in companies with revenue of $2MM to $20MM and at least $1MM of ARR.
- Traditional Companies: for established companies in other sectors (manufacturing & distribution, food & beverage, business services etc.), we seek a minimum $2 million of adjusted EBITDA and $5MM of revenue, but we will also consider fast growing but still unprofitable companies
- While we prefer a management team prepared to work with us for a period post investment, we do have the ability to staff complete executive management teams in most cases.
We will seek to leverage our investments when appropriate, via bank loans, SBA loans and SBIC/mezzanine debt.
