Eagle stresses the importance of building relationships with our partners, which are typically founder-owners. We are focused on collaborating as a team to achieve sustainable growth and create value. Our partners value our relationships because: we are experienced, easy to work with and, most importantly, we are and have been founder-owners ourselves.
Eagle Merchant Partners understood Caliber Car Wash’s growth story and value proposition from the beginning and was able to efficiently and effectively provide the capital that we needed to recapitalize our business. Eagle swiftly helped us build out key processes and procedures that enabled Caliber to create a robust new unit pipeline and invest in key back-office personnel and data reporting systems.
Eagle Merchant Partners was an incredible catalyst for growth at Chicken Salad Chick and was committed to investing into the right resources and team to fulfill our long-term vision for the company. Eagle invested in the management team and provided those team members with clear paths for more ownership opportunity and upside.
Eagle was a true partner to me and the entire management team at The Recreational Group, and we couldn’t have achieved our growth and success on the same timeline without them. Eagle was an excellent financial partner that provided the institutional knowledge and resources to support our company’s execution of multiple add-on acquisitions and large capital equipment investments. We were able to greatly expand both our geographic reach and vertical integration as a result.
At United PF Partners, we combined several businesses at closing and Eagle was critical to helping us build a strong foundation during the integration process. Eagle also led multiple re-financings that allowed UPF to execute an aggressive organic and inorganic unit growth strategy.
Eagle Merchant Partners and Recreational Group forged a strong, collaborative partnership that resulted in rapid growth and value creation for the existing owners and management team. Eagle proved to be a thoughtful capital partner by supporting management’s growth initiatives while providing crucial strategic guidance.
Eagle focuses on two core sectors, consumer and industrial, providing us deep sector knowledge and experience with how to grow across both industries. We have the results to prove our approach creates sustainable, long-term value.
We believe in building a shared strategic vision with our partners, with clear short term and long term goals that are aggressive yet achievable. Aligning executives with clear, consistent objectives across an open line of communication helps drive long-term value creation.
Our investment team brings decades of success in actually owning and operating businesses in both the lower middle market and our two core sectors. Eagle leverages its first-hand operating experience on the front-line of lower middle market businesses to complement strategic decisions made by management teams on a weekly basis.
Strategic visions and operations cannot be executed without an exceptional team. We look for ways to support existing executives and encourage hiring ahead of anticipated growth. We have deep networks of industry executives to help build out teams during what is typically a critical stage of development for our businesses.
There can be no assurance that Eagle Merchant Partners will be able to implement its investment strategy or achieve its investment objectives for any investment.
