Investment Preferences

LFE Capital invests in businesses with revenues of $5 to $50 million that need capital to support a plan of rapid growth. Uses of capital include working capital to accelerate growth, acquisitions, and liquidity for shareholders.

Depending on the need of the company, we can take minority or control positions. We invest $2-5 million over the life of each investment, and will consider larger transactions with co-investors.

LFE Capital provides junior capital in the form of preferred equity and subordinated debt to revenue generating companies that are seeking expansion capital to grow their businesses or buyout capital to restructure the ownership of their businesses.
