Since our founding in 1984, Dubin Clark has consistently partnered with outstanding management teams in building world-class businesses. Our success speaks for itself and our formula is simple – it’s about people. Through 125+ acquisitions (platforms and add-ons) over 35+ years, we owe significant gratitude to all our partners who have helped make us successful.
We are long-term investors, dedicated to creating value by helping our companies grow. We do this through a coordinated approach that includes providing the capital necessary to support internal growth, completing add-on acquisitions to build market share, and helping to develop new strategies for the future, while protecting the independence, culture and values that made the company successful in the first place.
We are business people, not solely financial investors, and understand the demands of running a company in a challenging environment. We approach every investment we make as a long-term partnership with the management team and structure our transactions accordingly.
The cornerstone of our investment philosophy is aligning incentives through shared ownership. Because we rely on management to act like owners, we ensure that they are. Our approach to business is more personalized than simply measuring success by the number of transactions consummated.
We are very selective and intentionally limit the number of companies in our portfolio. In this manner we can concentrate on providing the support and capital necessary to maximize each company’s potential. That is why Dubin Clark are considered truly value-added investors.
