Why RTK Family Capital?
RTK Family Capital is a private investment firm investing in middle-market companies in industries where our expertise enhances value, sustains growth and supports company management, their employees and the community. RTK understands that preserving the unique heritage of every business partner is the surest way of enhancing our own. Our aim is to maintain and preserve your legacy – our long-term, patient capital is a solid solution.
We invest first in relationships and second in companies. We design and complete a transaction structure that addresses the goals and objectives of the selling shareholders. We typically use a modest amount of bank debt in acquiring a company, opting to invest an above average amount of equity. As well, we stand ready to provide additional equity for the company’s growth.
Our approach makes us a unique and suitable acquirer for businesses owned by families and founders. Additionally, we have considerable experience in providing the capital for management teams when given the opportunity to acquire the divisions they operate.
A successful business runs on a skilled management team, and no one knows their company like the owners and managers. RTK Family Capital respects that fact. We open the door to management investment along with our own. We believe in a business philosophy that offers incentives and rewards when times are good and mutual support and encouragement in the face of challenges. That’s what a true long-term partner does. We build upon the company’s history while establishing a lasting relationship of mutual respect and reward.
Our investment is family capital, selective in its commitment, and conscious of preserving the entrepreneurial spirit that brings us together in the first place. You will not find a more dedicated partner in our pursuit of conservative long-term growth. We are interested in what works for the greater good and finding partners who support that philosophy and will make it their own. The essence of our philosophy is a steadfast commitment to the long-term success of the companies in which we invest, their employees and their communities.
