With high valuations, record levels of dry powder and enhanced competition, PE firms increasingly must be able to identify and deliver operational improvements through value creation strategies to achieve targeted returns.
We prioritize our involvement to focus on situations we know best: complex carve-outs, functional transformations and instances of stress/distress. Whatever the situation, we connect learnings from our strategy and transactions when delivering the value case.
We use embedded data and analytics at each stage of the process to accelerate our analysis, to help you set in motion the right strategy, improve operating performance, enable growth and optimize the exit. Our integrated private equity value creation teams focus to keep management on side without compromising speed or sacrificing the size of the prize.
Whether it is a carve-out or integration of a business, we help uncover new unexpected paths to value using traditional levers as well as new ones. Whether your investment thesis is built around revenue growth, cost reduction, working capital, ESG, technology or digital transformation, we’ll leverage our deep sector insights to help improve performance across all functional areas of the business and deliver measurable results. In situations of dis-stress, we help with preserving and recovering value through turnaround and restructuring.
GPS teams will meet you wherever you are in your value creation journey, from strategy that works in the real world through to the practical implementation that captures value in accelerated time scales.
Our investment approach is based on a disciplined due diligence process that measures risk while identifying the catalysts for increased value. We engage only in friendly transactions and work with talented management teams to achieve positive results.
We strive to create value by investing in great businesses where our capital, strategic insight, global relationships and operational support can drive transformation.
When we partner with a business, we focus on building it to last. Our staying power, drawn from the scale and breadth of the platform we’ve grown over 20+ years, helps our companies withstand market cycles and succeed for the long term.
