Investment Criteria

Main Street primarily invests in lower middle market companies with revenues of $10 - $150 million and EBITDA of $3 - $20 million. In determining whether to invest in a particular opportunity or entity, Main Street views the following factors favorably:

  • Seasoned and proven management team with meaningful financial commitment;
  • Positive recurring historical free cash flow;
  • Reasonable free cash flow margins and return on assets;
  • Traditional / basic businesses;
  • Niche market position / potential for market leadership;
  • Defensible competitive advantage; and
  • Reasonable exit alternatives.

Main Street also invests in middle market companies which are generally larger in size than its lower middle market portfolio companies and which have characteristics similar to those of its lower middle market companies.
