ABOUT ISLEWORTH

Founded in 2004, Isleworth Capital Partners, LLC is devoted to investing in mid-size manufacturing and technical service companies. The company consists of a rigorous team of senior executives who have extensive operational experience, identifying, scrutinizing, negotiating, and completing acquisitions.

ICP is a private investment company, not a private equity fund, and as such does not have the external pressure to exit its investments at a pre-defined time. ICP invests in opportunities where it partners with management teams to create additional value and align critical actions to meet or exceed objectives. In certain cases, ICP is prepared to assume operating roles with an acquired company. ICP funds its acquisitions through its personal capital, capital from key family office relationships, and with aligned individual investors.

WHAT WE LOOK FOR

  • Revenues range from $20-$300 million.
  • Industry agnostic but particular interest in manufacturing, distribution and technical services.
  • Focus on exclusive transactions precipitated by corporate divestitures or legacy planning transactions.
  • Strong interest in growth opportunities.
