CLEARLAKE HAS A FLEXIBLE MANDATE TO INVEST
IN BOTH PRIVATE AND PUBLIC TRANSACTIONS.
Clearlake has a flexible mandate to invest in both private and public transactions across the capital structure in debt or equity securities in the lower and middle market through buyouts, corporate divestitures, recapitalizations and reorganizations. Clearlake believes these situations provide attractive investment opportunities as they are often overlooked relative to large, widely followed restructurings and corporate buyouts. In addition, Clearlake believes it is further differentiated by utilizing its sector driven investment approach while investing in transactions in which the firm exercises control or has significant influence.
Clearlake’s history of active leadership as value-added investors is further enhanced by the firm’s network of executives and operating resources within its core industries. Clearlake has the ability to take advantage of market dislocations, out-of-favor industries, and companies in transition across different phases of the economic cycle while improving operations and creating value.
