Cadent Energy Partners is a private equity firm
that invests in small to medium-sized companies in the energy
industry. Cadent provides expansion capital to firms who want
to accelerate growth and build exceptional shareholder value in
partnership with an experienced energy investor.
Cadent focuses exclusively on the energy industry.
Given the complexity of the sector, we believe this high degree
of specialization, together with our extensive industry network
provides us with a competitive advantage in sourcing and evaluating
potential investments, executing acquisitions or exit transactions,
and adding tangible value to our portfolio companies.
The Cadent principals form a highly focused team, with expertise
in operations, corporate finance and in the relevant technical
aspects of the energy industry. Over the course of their careers, the Cadent principals have invested over $890 million in privately negotiated transactions across a broad range of energy sub-sectors. The team is distinguished
by a proven track record of success in creating value through its energy investments.
We generally commit between $25 million and $50 million per
investment, or more in syndication with investment partners.
The companies we invest in typically have a successful financial
history, with annual revenues from $10 million to $100 million
and positive EBITDA. Occasionally we may sponsor a proven management team in a
de novo company. We provide capital to fund development of new product lines,
acquisitions, geographical expansion and/or to provide partial liquidity to existing shareholders.
Cadent works closely with the management teams
of its portfolio companies to assist them in creating long-term
value for investors and management shareholders. Involvement with our portfolio companies is
normally via the board of directors and oversight consulting,
while the day-to-day management of the business remains in the
hands of management.
Cadent has offices in Stamford, CT and Houston, TX and focuses primarily on North American opportunities.
