Investment Criteria


Imperial Private Equity invests in privately-owned lower middle market companies to provide the shareholders with liquidity and/or capital for growth opportunities. We typically look to invest in businesses that operate in attractive niche markets and have strong management that is capable of executing strategies to enhance operating performance and drive growth.  Imperial looks to establish long-term partnerships with high quality management teams. Since Imperial invests only internally-managed capital, it can be flexible and creative for the right opportunity.
