transactions share the feature that we invest alongside strong management
teams that i) are in place, ii) have a meaningful role in selecting

to the business. Consequently, CHB does not participate in transactions
where an owner desires a complete sale of the business and management
cannot invest with CHB in the recapitalization of the company.
CHB focuses on growing, profitable companies at the smaller end of the middle market. While CHB has the

CHB invests in niche manufacturing, distribution and service businesses across an array of sectors from branded apparel to electronics manufacturing. Despite this diversified industry approach, CHB avoids investing in startups, turnarounds or in commodity driven sectors such as real estate, construction and natural resources.
