Focus

The search is focused on large, fragmented and steady growing industries. Examples of those industries include outsourced business services, light industrial manufacturing, and software as a service (SaaS). 

Linbrook Capital founder Kyle Marta is focused on identifying companies with enduring profitability within those industries. These are companies with a strong middle management, a track record of healthy margins and recurring revenue, and a competitive advantage to sustain and grow their profitability and market share. These companies are also not dependent on few customers, products or markets.

In recognizing that many outstanding companies will not meet every single one of these desired characteristics - Linbrook remains flexible to evaluate every opportunity on a case-by-case basis.
