What We Do
Newlook Capital (NLC) is a merchant bank that is actively involved in all of its investments. Through operating their own business ventures, NLC partners have gained years of experience and expertise that it translates into strong transactional and operational proficiency as a merchant bank. NLC is not interested in acquiring and divesting to earn fees. Rather, NLC is focused on finding exceptional businesses that are sound investments and have the potential for growth and further value creation.
NLC targets acquisitions with earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) between $2million and $5million. NLC also believes that a reoccurring revenue model and a strong, diversified client base are characteristics that lead to quality, value added acquisition.
NLC offers the best of both private-equity-style investing and advisory work, using their deal expertise to find investments opportunities for themselves as well as their network of investors.
They connect clients looking to raise private capital with those who have money to invest. NLC invests alongside its financial partners into every venture to align all parties’ interests and create the strongest company and partnerships; hence the tag line, “We are Invested.”.
Our model is patterned after the original model for a merchant bank. Our team is comprised of successful business people who now apply their operational, transactional and investment experience to the unique needs of mid-stage companies and their investors. We pride ourselves in both the quality and quantity of the long-term relationships we have built over the last 18 years.
We believe and our success confirms that today in North America, mid-market businesses want what the 18th-century merchant bank pioneered – a trusted, one-stop source for help in creating value.
