MDP’s founders adopted an industry focused investment approach over 30 years ago. We have six dedicated teams focusing on Basic Industries; Business & Government Services; Consumer; Financial & Transaction Services; Health Care; and Telecom, Media & Technology Services. MDP’s industry focus and long experience in these sectors is a key competitive advantage which we believe leads to (i) unique sourcing opportunities; (ii) in-depth understanding of the key value drivers of businesses; (iii) an ability to be targeted, efficient and focused during due diligence; and (iv) a clear plan in developing and executing a value creation strategy.
The industry teams act as a value-added partner to management throughout the life of the investment. We serve as a source of advice for business decisions in a number of areas where our investment experience can be particularly valuable, including (i) developing specific value creation strategies; (ii) long-term strategic planning; (iii) complicated financial and tax structuring; (iv) insight into the capital markets; and (v) financings, acquisitions and divestitures. This knowledge base, coupled with broad networks of industry contacts, has proven to be critical as management and MDP work together as partners to grow and improve businesses.
