ALY Holdings partners with management teams in acquiring and owning businesses with attractive positions in growing markets
ALY focuses its efforts on a small group of companies where it can work alongside committed management teams to implement strategic and tactical plans to grow long-term value.
ALY’s principals are private equity veterans with significant investing, operating and strategy consulting experience gained at leading companies such as Procter & Gamble, Hewlett Packard, Bain & Company, Halpern, Denny & Company, and Ampersand Capital Partners. As partners with management teams, we draw upon many decades of experience working with companies that have revenues as small as several million dollars to as large as several hundred million dollars across a broad variety of industries.
Unlike institutional private equity funds investing in a large portfolio of companies using other investors’ capital, we invest our own capital. This approach provides for a tight alignment between ALY and its co-investing management teams, as well as a more flexible time horizon than found with institutional funds that have short-term liquidity constraints.
ALY closed its first acquisition in 2013, working closely with a divisional management team to carve-out and purchase the business from its public company parent. The company was renamed AvCarb Material Solutions (www.avcarb.com) and is based in Lowell, MA.
