EDS’ Private-Equity Group (PEG) invests in ‘people’ and affords owners and management more than just liquidity and investment dollars. Running a company is a complex process, requiring expert planning, advice, and execution. In committing its own funds, EDS does not act as a broker but rather as partner—one who, together with its affiliates, has the ability to bring to the table the funds and expertise needed to realize almost any given type of project. Our seasoned professionals provide our portfolio companies and clients with a broad range of value-creating—monetizing advice and services. This includes growing the company through strategic alliances and joint ventures within our family of portfolio companies.
While we do not limit our investments and advisory services to any particular industry or sector. We are attracted to and particularly skilled at investing in and advising Healthcare IT, Pharmaceutical and Life Sciences, U.S. Government Contractors requiring TS Clearance, Women-Owned Businesses and, in Special Asset and Turnaround Situations.
Many extraordinary companies are closely-held and family-owned businesses. Owners of such businesses are motivated for a variety of reasons, but one element remains constant: they want ‘their’ babies to grow and succeed. We regard our portfolio companies and clients as family. Our commitment is nurturing, reliable, constant, and untiring. We bring our family of portfolio companies and advisory clients ‘Wall Street smarts with Main Street sense’.
As patient long-term investors dedicated to value creation, when the time is right, we exit our investments through IPO’s, sales to strategic buyers, and other means.
