Gravitas Infinitum, LLC was established to consolidate Small Cap Nutraceutical Manufacturing companies into an attractive Mid Cap company, followed by a profitable exit strategy.
Gravitas believes that this rapidly growing market sector will continue to present numerous attractive investment opportunities for leveraged buyouts, recapitalization and strategic investments.
Our Team will primarily focus on companies located in the Southeastern region of the US with enterprise values ranging from approximately $5 million to $100 million. Over the past two years, Gravitas has conducted intensive research into this market, the current available inventory of target companies and capital availability. The Company has also engaged in negotiations with several potential target companies to validate the thesis.
Gravitas focuses on existing top-class operating teams as targets. These are typically 5-30-year-old companies with $5-100mm in annual revenue, delivering 10% or greater EBITDA annually. Purchase prices are 2-6x EBITDA, or 25-125% of annual revenue. The target company must also show annual growth of 5% of better.
Gravitas brings six core strengths to any acquired company. These are; Purchasing Power Aggregation, Logistics Aggregation, Digital Marketing, Sales/Advertising, and Digital Transformation, Automation of business functions and Social Responsibility Values. These are areas that small businesses typically don't invest in or focus on until much later in their growth cycle.
Gravitas’ investment philosophy is deeply rooted within each member of its team which is focused achieving strong economic returns by buying the leading companies. Gravitas’ team of Principals and Advisors have the experience necessary to help the Company identify, invest in, and successfully acquire companies in the sector.
The Company’s strategy is to acquire $350-500mm in top-line revenue producing companies in the next three years. As the companies are acquired, we will improve operating margins and accelerate revenue growth by consolidation of logistics, purchasing, technology, marketing, sales, advertising, and applying best practice of information support automation. Our target sector is growing at 15%+ per year.
Target Purchase Criteria is as follows:
Gravitas will employ an investment model that generates superior risk-adjusted, above-market returns. The target company must have a strong existing operating team, and 5+ year proven track-record of profits. Finally, as Gravitas assimilates the targets, we will be adding support in purchasing, logistics, technology, marketing and sales.
The segment we are focused on provides products and services to consumers, business, and governments across demographic segments. The markets are large and highly fragmented, consisting of thousands of private businesses generating over $200B in annual revenues in the US. Many of these businesses are young, relatively undercapitalized and in need of more fully developed management and systems infrastructures. The market is forecasted to grow at 15% per annum, fueled by aging population and retirees. The combination of size, growth and fragmentation makes the space attractive for consolidation.
The Company is managed by seasoned business and sector professionals dedicated to the success of its companies, investors, partners and communities.
