Investment Strategy
Investment Focus

Targeting opportunities in the lower
middle market

We have deep experience in certain sectors, however we don’t limit ourselves to narrow industries like many private equity firms. Instead, our focus is on company size. We have proven that there are solid opportunities for creating value in the lower end of the middle market, a business niche rich with entrepreneurial companies run by smart and responsive management teams.

We are confident in our ability to identify those opportunities and create value for our portfolio partners.
The criteria that mark a successful
Prairie investment

Company Attributes
  • Defensible market niche and strong value proposition
  • Participation in an industry with stable and growing primary demand
  • Significant, identifiable opportunities for organic growth
  • Above-average profit margins and historical growth rate
  • Experienced, equity-incentivized management team
We’re looking for companies with stable cash flows and solid track records. We do not invest in early-stage companies, turnarounds, or companies with project-based revenues.
