When Alturus was first introduced to Shep Bailey and Ken Weskamp, Timberline Gas was a great strategy with a great team, but lacked the scale to attract traditional institutional capital. We saw the potential and the opportunity to be a key, active resource for management as they executed their growth plan.
During our ownership period, we completed three add-on acquisitions, opened three greenfield locations, refined our sourcing and pricing strategies, and added significant depth to the team.
Ultimately, these activities and growth initiatives led to the company being a highly attractive geographic expansion target for ThompsonGas, who purchased the business in August of 2021.
When Alturus was first introduced to Scott Harper, Dialexa was a fast-growing, highly unique digital experiences services firm. Their need for capital was limited at the time, but we continued to invest in the relationship and patiently waited for the right timing.
As the Company grew, Alturus was presented with the opportunity to offer a custom-tailored capital solution that would position the company for future growth and provide the current owners and management team a value-added, supportive partner. The company had numerous capital options, but Alturus presented the best mix of a tailored deal (solving exactly what they needed) and positive partnership dynamics – what we call collaborative capital.
Dialexa is very well positioned at the convergence of digital transformation and design-led technology consulting, and we are thrilled to be playing a role in their continued growth.
When Alturus was first introduced to Graham Radler, Baseline Energy Services was a great company with strong historical performance, but one that competed in a broader market where few investors wanted exposure (Oilfield Services in 2016). Proving we are not afraid to be contrarian, we saw the potential of the business and Graham, and the opportunity to help the Company take the next step in its growth.
Since our partnership, we have invested significant capital into building out our generator fleet, added significant depth to the team, completed numerous asset acquisitions, and actively worked with our lending partners to optimize our balance sheet and access to capital.
Baseline is now one of the largest generator rental service businesses in the U.S. and has a number of exciting opportunities for continued growth.
When Alturus was first introduced to Rick Smith and his team at Encapture, we saw the makings of a fantastic growth story, but one that needed collaborative capital to be the catalyst.
We worked intensively with the management team at Encapture and one of our Operating Partners, Will Robinson, to chart a path where everything Encapture had been building could come to fruition – better, cheaper, and faster. Importantly, our plan set out to do all of that without tarnishing or disrupting the legacy and track record Rick had built.
Since our partnership, we have invested significantly in their core product offering, realigned and re-energized the existing team, added talent, and transitioned day to day leadership in a way that both celebrates legacy and looks to the future.
Encapture is poised to disrupt an important part of the ecosystem within financial services and we are proud to be a contributor to their success.
When Alturus was first introduced to Jeff Brock and the Hargett Hunter team, they had already begun executing on the core elements of their strategy – Investing in 5-10 unit growth restaurant concepts and bringing operating expertise to improve and accelerate these concept’s potential.
We identified the strategy as an attractive way to gain access to consumer trends of increased dining out, back a team with a singular focus and expertise in the restaurant industry, and ample runway to grow its own operating capabilities and expertise by bringing top talent alongside the concepts to generate attractive returns.
Hargett Hunter needed a capital partner – truly collaborative capital - to help them seed and execute a committed capital vehicle that would allow the firm to reach its full potential.
Hargett Hunter is well on its way to being one of the top investors and operators in its space and we are proud to be a part of their success.
