We believe the greatest percentage returns occur in the early stage of a company’s life cycle, therefore ACM has many times been the first outside capital invested. Our initial investment in a company ranges from $500,000 up to $5 million with a maximum total investment of up to $10 million. This amount is significantly greater than most funds that prefer to do syndicated capital rounds. This strategy gives ACM significant influence from the onset and provides significant rights to follow-on offerings.
We prefer to lead a capital round, thereby setting the terms and do not require other outside investors to be involved. These characteristics, are again, much different from most funds. Last we believe that a more focused portfolio with significant ownership (and influence) will result in superior returns over the long-term.
If this strategy resonates with you we invite you to review the Investor Suitability section for further information.
