Altair, directly and indirectly, maintains a competent team of operators, consultants, analysts, and researchers, including CPA’s, Six-Sigma Black Belts, MBA’s and deeply experienced former CXO’s to achieve results that meet the expectations of its limited partners and investors. The integrated team approach of these professionals, applied in a deliberate and disciplined manner, is required to address the complexities of Altair’s investment thesis. Consequently, above-average returns are generated by pursuing investment opportunities in any one of the following three modalities, or any combination thereof:
DISCIPLINE & APPROACH
- Opportunistic Buyouts and Build-ups
The Altair team has substantial experience leading, supporting or integrating leveraged transactions in various market conditions in order to pursue value appreciation. Altair’s accretive strategies are highly differentiated and include build-ups on platform investments and scenarios requiring complex operational execution.
- Corporate Carve-Outs
The Altair principals have meaningful corporate carve-out experience, both as investors and as extractors of value in support of clients from a consultant standpoint. The capacity of various team members to build out infrastructure and back-office systems is substantial. Given the time consuming and multi-disciplinary nature of carve-out transactions, depth of industry knowledge, complex problem-solving and significant creativity is required to optimize value creation.
- Distressed Investments
Altair’s corporate finance, debt capital and operational transformation expertise all point to this aspect of the firm’s capabilities as a distinctive core competency. These skills are present in the founding of the firm given team members that hail from the top turn around firms and financial institutions worldwide. Consequently, the approach to this niche investment approach is rooted in bottoms-up credit analysis, with the ability to invest at any tranche of the capital structure.
