About Ridge Capital Partners

Ridge Capital Partners, LLC is a Northern Virginia based private equity investment firm focused on partnering with business owners, entrepreneurs, and management teams to build market-leading companies. Ridge Capital Partners, LLC invests in lower middle-market companies in the manufacturing, distribution, and business/consumer services industries. RCP is focused on investing in companies that meet certain strategic, operating, and financial characteristics. These parameters include the following: -An accomplished management team willing to make a financial commitment to the future success of their business, but we will also work with existing management teams who are retiring to find a suitable solution that meets the needs of the owner, employees, and customers. -A core business with a sustainable competitive advantage in its market segment derived through a combination of proprietary products or services, low-cost production, and/or superior service or distribution capability. -Ongoing growth trends in the industry and industry sub-segments. -Significant prospects for revenue growth, expansion of profit margins, and additional opportunities to expand business scope either through acquisitions or internal growth. -Minimal exposure to technological or strategic business obsolescence. -Revenue typically between $15 and $100 million with earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (“EBITDA”) between $2 and $20 million and a history of profitable operations. RCP will consider companies below these size ranges if they possess high growth characteristics or create a strategic fit with a current RCP portfolio company. -A fit between RCP and its prospective management partners. RCP’s approach is that there should be interpersonal chemistry, a sense of teamwork, and a commonality of goals and objectives.
