Working Together

One of the roles have is serving as an Operating Partner with Atlas Holdings LLC, a US-based Private Equity fund, with investments across the world.

One of the tasks the Managing Partner asked me to undertake was to help match Atlas’ operating expertise, strategic insight and capital up with great opportunities in a place I know well – Canada. They already have active investments in Canada, others in progress – and have successfully restructured and operated businesses in the country.

Headquartered in Connecticut, Atlas owns and operates seventeen platform businesses with over 120 facilities worldwide. The approximately 21,000 associates of Atlas and its operating companies help to transform, invigorate and drive forward a broad range of manufacturing and distribution businesses.

Generally, they look to acquire or make control investments in businesses of scale – where their expertise, insight, support and capital can make a real, strategic and long-term difference; creating and unlocking real value.

This is how they put it:

We bring financial, operating and transactional expertise to our investments. We invest globally and have the demonstrated ability to address the many unique challenges of complex, multi-jurisdictional transactions. We work closely with management teams and our Operating Partners to invest in companies facing complex situations, including:

  • Complex corporate carve-outs
  • Bankruptcy, receivership or broken auctions
  • Debtor-in-possession financing
  • Environmental, legal or regulatory issues
  • Out-of-favor industries
  • Significant operating problems
  • Distressed debt purchases
  • Take private transactions

We understand the need for expediency and certainty and we are able to move quickly with owners, lenders, management teams or brokers to generate creative solutions that satisfy the needs of interested parties. We have diligenced and closed transactions in 60 days or less.
