Stonewood Capital Management, Inc

Stonewood Capital Management, Inc. is a Pittsburgh-based private equity firm seeking investment opportunities primarily with manufacturing, assembly, or distribution companies with sales from $5 to $60 million.

Stonewood’s executives have experience with many types of transactions, but specialize in making acquisitions in partnership with experienced management teams. The managers supply the business skills necessary to move the company forward, and Stonewood adds value by helping craft strategies for growth and margin improvement as well as assisting management teams with legal and financial issues that arise in the business.

Each of Stonewood’s executives is well versed in a wide range of creative transaction structures and, as a result, Stonewood is able to be a highly flexible investment partner. Stonewood is comfortable participating as both equity investor and subordinated debt provider when appropriate to make transactions easier to finance and close.

Stonewood offers those in search of capital an unusual advantage because it is managed by a small group of executives charged with investing the private equity component of a large private portfolio, and as a result Stonewood is free to make both initial and follow-up investments without the approval of an outside board of investors.

Who is eligible for this funding option?
Early-stage companies that have developed unique solutions to clearly-defined problems in the marketplace–solutions with enough growth potential to offer significant upside for both the business and its investors. Preference is given to companies that are involved in technical fields, but opportunistic investments in health care, drug discovery, media and consulting businesses have also been made.

Range of funding: $100,000 – $1M
