Who we are

We are a holding company managed by experienced operators and finance professionals who have scaled businesses in various industries.

We believe sustainable business growth requires sound strategy, strong partners, and great relationships.

We have committed capital, a strong balance sheet, and the ability to support companies throughout their lifecycle.

We invest with a long-term perspective and with the goal of growing earnings while making regular distributions to all stakeholders.

We focus on B2B companies in the lower middle-market, where our experience, networks, and shared back office resources create tremendous value.

How do we do it?

Our approach

Create value through strategic planning and operational enhancements.

Collaborate with our management teams and provide support without getting in the way.

Deal selection

Tide Rock evaluates investment opportunities from a different perspective than traditional financial and strategic buyers.  We strive to generate long-term sustainable earnings growth rather than targeting 3-5 year exits.  Our holding company model gives us flexibility in acquisition structure and the ability to work with business sellers to achieve their unique goals.  Unlike traditional financial buyers, we will not overburden our partner companies with debt.
