TYPES OF INVESTMENTS
Burke America focuses on four types of potential acquisitions:

Generational Sales
Owners of family-operated and owned businesses often fear the company will suffer if they
retire or sell. We work with retirees to facilitate this transition and offer security in
the company’s future.

Under-Managed Companies
Often niche businesses underperform due to a lack of capital, focus, or growth
initiatives. We improve the performance and profits of such companies through our combined
expertise.

Corporate Orphans
Being part of a larger corporation can hurt smaller middle-market companies — ownership
cannot always provide adequate attention or support. We acquire such companies and provide
them with what they need.

Industry Consolidation
When appropriate, we expand our stake in an industry through smaller add-on
acquisitions.
