The firms approach to venture capital investing involves a heavy emphasis on business strategy development, fundamental research, computer modeling, and extensive networking with relevant industry and company contacts. LM Capital's goal is to assure an attractive investment opportunity and a viable business proposition, which encompasses:
o A competent management team
o A minimum of five years of profitability
o Prospective investment returns of 20% annually
The venture capital investments arranged by LM Capital will typically be held for three to five years, and the investors will often bring expertise as well as capital to the table. Development of a strategy to permit the venture capital investor to exit the investment is critical to the strategic plan.
LM Capital's experience in venture capital investing often provides it an early opportunity to research and invest in companies which are evolving into faster growing and more profitable firms than the traditional industry leaders. In other cases, LM Capital advises companies on investor relations, corporate strategy, financial restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate governance.
Corporate governance and investor relations issues have become an increasingly important part of LM Capital's advisory assignments, and complement the development of effective corporate strategies for growth and profitability.
