We are a family office and as such, we do not have a fund with outside capital. This means that unlike traditional private equity firms, CoBe has the expectation to hold investments for the long term. Our experience and expertise allows us to form “entry” strategies focused on long-term growth and value creation, rather than short-term goals with predefined exit strategies. Having completed numerous turnarounds of businesses with operations in North America and Europe, we are specialists in the acquisition and restructuring of distressed companies. In situations where no general manager will be staying with the divested operation, CoBe's Managing Directors can take interim leadership positions while the company establishes its standalone operations. In addition to developing new services and acquiring new customers, CoBe recognizes that as markets change and strategies evolve, an operating company may need to add new capabilities to support its vision through strategic bolt-on acquisitions and our business development team will work hand-in-hand with a management team to identify potential acquisition candidates.
