• About JMH Capital Partners

    An Operationally Driven Private Equity Firm

    JMH CAPITAL PARTNERS (JMH) is an operationally-oriented private equity firm based in Boston, focused on successful businesses with $5 million to $150 million of revenue. We seek to invest in exceptional companies that have the potential, but are lacking the resources or experience necessary, to double or triple their size.

     

    JMH Capital differentiates itself from traditional private equity groups by the considerable senior-level operating experience of its partners. The JMH Capital team has significant experience building businesses across a range of industries and transaction types. We bring an extensive array of resources – strategic, financial, operational, and transactional – to the businesses and management teams we partner with during our investment.

  • Investment Philosophy

    Given our investing style, we put a premium on open, honest, respectful, and collaborative partnerships. Many of the operating executives and resources brought to bear in each of our investments are people with whom we’ve developed relationships in past transactions. The partners of JMH invest significant personal capital alongside our limited partners and co-investors in EVERY transaction. We approach the business issues and management decisions as individual owners of the company.

    JMH as the Ideal Capital Partner

    We have a long track record of working successfully with businesses to accelerate their growth. Typically we seek companies that have a market-leading product or service but are otherwise constrained from growing more rapidly or realizing better profitability.

     

    The collaborative, “roll up our sleeves” nature of our relationships with management allows us to address a broad range of strategic, financial, and operational issues over the lifecycle of each investment. We generally invest in fewer portfolio companies and dedicate more of our personal time to each. We use the experience we’ve gained as operators growing similar businesses, to help drive highly profitable growth, improve operating performance, and acquire complementary operations during our investment period.

    Transaction Types

      JMH will consider a variety of transaction types and structures, customized to each situation and unique goals of the business owner. Over its history, JMH has completed transactions structured as:

      • 100% buyouts
