Investment Criteria

We make investments that mirror our operating experience in Western Canada.



We look to partner with management teams that have a repeatable track record in generating shareholder value and have a full set of skills that are congruent with the business plan.


We look to invest in business strategies that make sense given current and prospective market conditions and that will, under reasonable assumptions, create significant growth resulting in an attractive return on exit. A key question we ask ourselves is whether we, as management, would want to implement the strategy and whether we would be able to execute upon it.


We invest in opportunities that are appropriately capitalized for the business plan and industry environment. We achieve alignment through management investment and performance-based compensation plans.


We invest in opportunities that have visible alternatives for exit and have scalable resource bases that will attract premium valuations.
