PARTNERING WITH PRAIRIE
Prairie Advisory Corp. is one of Alberta's leading mid-market private equity firms. We are entrepreneurial, independent and focused on opportunities in Western Canada.

The Prairie team consists of a small group of professionals with significant operational and transactional experience. We work closely with our management partners, together proactively putting in place a strategy that maximizes growth potential and value creation by emphasizing operational excellence and an efficient capital structure. Prairie acts as an effective sounding board for management without interfering in the day-to-day operations of the business.

We believe that an exceptional, experienced management team is critical to the success of any business. With this in mind, we look to partner with management teams who are committed to the future of the companies they run and offer such management teams an opportunity for meaningful financial upside.

INVESTMENT CHARACTERISTICS

Industry Focus

Prairie makes significant investments in established, well-run companies with a proven track record of success and a sustainable competitive advantage.

Form of Investment

Our investments take the form of equity that can be used to finance a transaction (e.g. management buy-outs and corporate divestitures) or to fund growth opportunities.

Investment Size

We are seeking to make investments in companies with operating earnings/EBITDA in the range of $2.5 million to $20 million, or higher in certain circumstances. We are also interested in opportunities below this size range if they are a potential strategic fit with one of our existing portfolio companies.

Investment Horizon

Prairie does not have a mandated timeframe for each investment. That said, we have found that most investments span a four (4) to seven (7) year time period. We believe that the best way to maximize the value of our investments is to position each company for continued success well beyond our typical investment horizon. Therefore, we focus on sustainable, long-term achievements rather than short-term financial gains.
