About Alchemy Capital

Headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, Alchemy Capital Partners is a privately funded merchant banking firm specializing in acquiring, investing in and advising mid-market companies with enterprise values up to $250 million.  We partner with management teams and executives to assist in value creation through the development and execution of organic and external growth strategies.

Alchemy Capital was established to address a growing need for independent advice backed by private capital in the lower middle market segment.  Historically, this market segment had been overlooked by private equity firms (who typically focus on larger companies and transactions), search funds (who typically undertake a single transaction), individual investors (who seek specialized opportunities from within their personal networks) and by transaction-oriented investment banks.

Investment Strategy

Alchemy Capital Partners seeks to acquire established companies with proven business models, brand recognition, a track record of profitability and prospects for organic or external growth.  Our strategy is based on leveraging the experience of our team and our operating partners to actively drive the value creation process.  We are long term, patient investors and seek to proactively create value rather than maximize returns through cost-cutting strategies that maybe detrimental over the long term.

Our investment focus builds on the legacies of the entrepreneurs we acquire companies from.  As a matter of policy, we do not change the name of the entity and have yet to terminate an employee as part of any transition process.  Rather than reducing costs, we prefer to invest in the employees at each company we acquire, and to partner with them to create value over the long term.

Our Investment Criteria

For direct investments, Alchemy Capital Partners typically seeks companies with an enterprise value of between $5 million and $50 million, and we prefer to be the controlling investor in each of our portfolio companies.  

 

Our ideal investment candidates have EBITDA of between $1 and $5 million, an ample competitive position and historical profitability. We are also comfortable investing in companies that are underperforming and require operational restructuring or strategic repositioning to return them to their growth paths.  We are well suited to work with family-owned companies that lack a succession plan as we typically install our own executive management team post-acquisition.
