LVGI offers shareholders a unique opportunity to own a diverse group of leading small and medium businesses that are profitable and have excellent opportunities for growth. We own controlling interests in our subsidiary businesses, which maximizes our operating flexibility and drives long-term value creation.
LVGI is a business builder, not an asset trader. Our permanent capital structure provides a competitive advantage, enabling us to be more patient in how we acquire, actively manage and opportunistically divest leading small medium businesses.
With no set timeline to deploy capital or harvest investments, LVGI is committed to making the right decisions to drive long-term value for our subsidiaries and shareholders.
Our permanent capitalization structure provides us with unmatched financial flexibility to be opportunistic and disciplined about our investments. The potential for extended ownership enables our collaborative, low leverage approach, which is attractive to management teams and allows subsidiaries to better manage for growth.
At LVGI, we believe the best way to create value is through an alignment of interests and long-term partnership approach. We work closely with management teams to leverage our deep sector expertise, operational experience and global resources to accelerate our subsidiaries’ growth.
We maintain a strong internal culture of accountability and governance and deliver the highest level of transparency through quarterly financial reporting across our portfolio.
