What We Look For


Our investment strategy is to invest alongside management in established companies that are leaders in their respective markets.

We search for opportunities where we can unlock value as a partner. We do not operate businesses; rather we strive to complement management as active board participants. We generally assist with financings, identify acquisition targets, develop strategic plans and, if helpful, support operational projects.

We look carefully at the following attributes:

  • Established cash positive business, possessing a sustainable competitive advantage and proprietary products or services with proven market acceptance.
     

  • Strong core management team with a significant financial commitment and willingness to partner with Bedford in an open and productive manner to build value.
     

  • Important market position and the potential for market leadership in defensible market niches.
     

  • Stable and established industry with strong growth prospects, either organically or through acquisitions.
     

  • Identifiable exit strategy, typically within 4 to 7 years.
