We are growth-oriented investors looking to partner with strong operators who need a dependable financial investor. We preferably aim for 50%+ equity ownership with a clear timeline to exit the investment. Preferred investments are either profitable or close to profitable businesses with a clear path to profitability. The business must be either an auto dealership or a company directly servicing the automotive retail market based in Canada.
