PARTNERSHIP

We Work to Create a Shared Vision

RoundTable’s investment strategy is built on the cornerstone of partnership. We have a long history and track record of partnering with owner/founders, family companies, entrepreneurs, and management teams. We also have a unique skillset in executing complex corporate carve-outs. Prior to any investment, RoundTable works with our partners to define a growth strategy, to identify and plan for current and future strategic challenges, and to create a roadmap to success.

Our partners often retain meaningful ownership stakes, which have resulted in significant value creation through a “second bite of the apple”.

We strive to maintain the culture our partners have created.

ALIGNED INCENTIVES

We Align Our Incentives with Our Partners

We typically structure our investments such that RoundTable and our partners (including our management teams) own the exact same equity securities, with no preference or distinction between shareholders.

RoundTable’s employees have a meaningful economic interest in the firm’s investments, as we represent the single largest investor in our funds.

Growth Orientation

We Build Strategically Stronger Businesses

RoundTable works collaboratively with our partners to build leading healthcare companies of lasting value. Our philosophy of value creation involves long-term investment in people, products, and pipeline, rather than financial engineering and structuring. We give our companies the balance sheet flexibility to execute on their growth initiatives. This growth-focused mindset enables our companies to invest to achieve their strategic objectives.

Strategy and Expertise

We are more than just capital. We have enabled our partners and management teams to:

  • Sales & Marketing

    Build sales forces, execute on new market strategies, and access customers, sales channels, and partners.

  • Pipeline Development

    Build R&D facilities and teams, develop IP strategies, and invest in and commercialize new product pipelines.

  • Manufacturing

    Execute significant capacity expansions, build new manufacturing operations, and augment current manufacturing processes.

  • Quality/Regulatory

    Develop regulatory strategies for key pipeline products, proactively address quality and regulatory systems, and remediate quality issues.

  • Finance

    Build and upgrade ERP and IT infrastructure, develop enhanced reporting, and improve controls and audit/tax processes.

  • Human Capital

    Expand their teams with additional management talent.

  • Transactional Expertise

    We have supported over 70 add-on transactions for our portfolio companies in partnerships with our management teams, and helped lead all aspects of the deal process. We have deep relationships with strategic buyers that help produce optimal results at exit.
