Description

Montrusco Bolton Investments (“MBI”) has joined forces with Ardenton Capital Corporation, a private business investment company that differentiates itself from traditional private equity firms by focusing on long-term investments (25+ years) and providing passionate management teams and business owners with permanent capital.

When bidding on investment opportunities, instead of competing on price like most private equity firms do, Ardenton offers permanent capital, with no pre-determined exit provision, which aligns interests with the vendors and Ardenton’s business partners. In addition, Ardenton uses its comprehensive proprietary framework, the Ardenton Operating System (“AOS”), to support business improvements and the strategic growth of portfolio companies.

Ardenton generally considers three types of investments, namely management buyouts, growth capital and owner succession.  Its business portfolio is divided into the following platforms:  building products, infrastructure, business solutions, technology and communications, consumer products, health and food. A dedicated investment staff originates and completes transactions sourced from sell side advisors. In addition, Ardenton’s Investment Committee oversees a rigorous due diligence process for each opportunity considered.
