PROPRIETARY, FLEXIBLE CAPITAL.
Allows for efficient decision-making in the best long-term interests of our companies.
We are a unique alternative to today’s typical private equity provider. Our permanent, proprietary capital base allows for efficient decision-making, flexible transaction structures, and ideal alignment with management teams. We seek business partners in which we can invest for the long haul, employing a buy, hold, and grow strategy. We are a team of entrepreneurs and operators with a deep understanding of what it takes to lead and scale successful distribution businesses. Our approach allows us to make decisions in the best long-term interest of our companies and employees.
OUR INVESTMENT FOCUS
Our expertise is distribution, which is where we can add the greatest value.
Generally, we prefer to partner with businesses with an enterprise value between $50–$500 million. No minimum for add-ons.
We target companies based in the U.S. or Canada that have a national reach.
How We Partner
Providing the Key Ingredients for Growth
The Tracy family is the sole source of capital for DFH. This allows for efficient decision-making, flexible transaction structures, and a permanent capital base to fund growth whether organically or through acquisition.
Our team has decades of experience building the structures necessary to support sustainable growth. From the outset, we establish governance that provides the guidance required to achieve our companies’ growth objectives.
We firmly believe that disciplined strategic planning is essential to driving business growth. We provide the resources our companies need to begin or improve their strategic planning process.
Talent is our greatest resource, and we believe it is the most important resource for any business. We know how to develop existing talent within our companies, and we have the resources to find and recruit talented individuals to help grow our businesses.
Each company is different. Our team has the experience to help define or refine our companies’ growth strategies, and we have the business development resources to identify and execute add-on acquisitions.
