Forms of Investment

 

  • Growth capital to add new facilities, products or to make acquisitions
  • Leveraged buyouts -- management led buyouts, change of control, company spin-offs
  • Shareholder liquidity events including recapitalizations and family succession
  • Special situations:
  • Even though we prefer to control equity investments, we remain open to a variety of other structures:

                 - Purchase of assets such as real estate, inventory, and receivables
                 - Equipment and project financing
                 - Mezzanine capital
                 - Bridge loans

  • We have a preference for control but are open to co-investment opportunities
  • We are prepared for "Opportunity Management" in situations where on-site management augmentation by Diamond's operating professionals can add immediate value to enhance the realization of the company's potential.
