Investment Strategy

For 30 years, Vestar has maintained a consistent focus on investing in middle-market-sized companies.  We continue to believe that the middle market offers private equity investors the greatest opportunity for significant capital appreciation.

We have strategic, operating and financial expertise in three key industry sectors, which enables us to identify opportunities, particularly in dynamic, complex situations that demand a high degree of industry knowledge.

We bring a creative and flexible approach to the structuring of investment transactions and have a reputation for being able to close complex transactions.  We focus on investment merit and value creation and are not constrained by decision-support formulas or overly restrictive investment guidelines.

Post-investment, Vestar’s investment and operating professionals work together to provide management with support and guidance on strategy, follow-on acquisitions, divestitures, operational improvements, talent management and other activities that may be needed to build long-term value.
