Welcome to Watermark Companies, LLC
Watermark Companies, LLC (Watermark) is a private investment firm whose origin began with the successful operations of companies. We were entrepreneurs first and know what it takes to build and foster first class businesses. We look for investment opportunities that we can help grow and build upon the sound footings that the current management has passionately embraced. We work with present owners looking for an exit strategy, partial recapitalization, or capital structure reorganization. Watermark is a control-oriented and active operating partner who acquires, manages, and builds companies.
We acquire companies with strong management, a stable history of profitability, strong cash flow, and defensible niches. We invest in people as much, if not more than processes, products, and business models. Business is all about the people within the organization and with a winning team anything can be accomplished. We look for opportunities through enhancement of personnel, strategy, and technology to significantly improve sales and EBITDA. Attractive companies have the ability to differentiate themselves and sustain their core competencies.
We look for companies which have key managers interested in growing the company. We look to identify additional services and offerings that make strategic sense and add to them through investment in people, training, equipment purchases, or acquisitions.
Our investment team has extensive experience in general management, start-up management, production and service operations, sales, marketing, and corporate finance. We work closely to build the value of each acquired business.
We have invested in manufacturing, oil field service, automotive, media, transaction processing, and financial service oriented businesses.
