Altra has established an excellent reputation for,
and a proven track record of, creating significant value in midcap companies, particularly those that were previously family-owned businesses.
Over the course of this experience, the firm has developed a thorough understanding of the unique challenges and opportunities facing family-owned businesses in Colombia and Peru. In this context, the firm targets equity investments of USD 30 to USD 60 million in companies with revenues ranging from USD 15 to USD 150 million.
Altra has maintained a consistent focus on control and “effective control” investments. The Firm believes that its ability to significantly impact the major strategic, financial, personnel, and operational decisions of its portfolio companies is absolutely critical to maximizing returns for investors while minimizing the attendant risks associated with operating in Colombia, Peru, and across the region. Altra seeks to obtain equity control whenever possible, to ensure that there are mechanisms in place to enable the investment thesis, attract human capital or execute the changes required in the portfolio companies’ operations to reach their maximum potential.
