Private Equity | Lower Middle Market | Los Angeles

Approach

We are a private equity group focused on obtaining majority and minority interests in US based companies with $1MM-$15MM in EBITDA. We like companies that have EBITDA Margins that are greater than or equal to 10%.

 

We team with ownership teams in the following 4 sectors:

Roots Equity Group is hands on with all of our portfolio companies. When we invest in a company, we truly partner with current ownership: obtaining strategic partners, developing new lines of revenue, optimizing supply chain, amongst a plethora of tasks tailored for that portfolio company to grow.

 

With our approach of holding a tight knit portfolio, the success of each portfolio company matters. We put in the time and effort to make that happen.
