Vermilion makes control investments in family-owned businesses. We look for high performing businesses that care about all stakeholders. Your specific industry is not as important to us as the consistent profitable growth of your business.
Depending on your needs, Vermilion can use an equity buyout to take majority control or use an injection of our capital to accelerate growth. We can hold a minority or majority stake, with the discretionary right to acquire the balance of the equity when you are ready to exit.
The Vermilion team has spent decades partnering with family-business owners in the lower middle market. We understand the tactical, operational and strategic challenges you face, and have strategies to address them.
We work with you to develop goal-driven plans, identify priorities, provide resources, solve problems and pursue growth.
We focus on the patient use of capital and know-how in partnership with management over the long term.
Our relationship with Mortenson gives you unique access to the resources and network of a multi-billion-dollar enterprise, as well as the know-how to successfully scale a family enterprise.
