Who We Are
Pelican Energy Partners is a highly specialized private equity fund led by a group of experienced energy service professionals focused on making strategic investments in energy services and manufacturing companies.
What We Do
Pelican Energy Partners is focused solely on energy service and equipment company investments. We seek to invest in companies that have the potential to grow substantially. We take a long term view on value creation and work diligently to help solid companies grow into truly outstanding companies.
We seek investment opportunities in companies that fit a general profile:
- Profitable, established businesses with EBITDA generally between $1 million and $10 million annually. We do have the ability to consummate transactions with EBITDA up to $30+ million
- Entrepreneurial management teams that demonstrate competitive advantages in a well-defined market segment seeking growth capital
- Headquartered in the US or Canada
- Quality reputation as fair and honest providers to customers
Pelican works with company owners to structure transactions that allow owners to not only realize value in their business today, but remain with the company and experience the professional and financial benefit of taking the business to the next level. We strive to create environments where founders are allowed to focus their time on those aspects of the business where they bring the most value and personal satisfaction, and we use the collective expertise of our investment professionals and operating partners to:
- Intelligently deploy financial and operating tools to help monitor performance and sustain growth;
- Recruit key personnel additions in all aspects of management;
- Develop and execute growth strategies in new markets and new services, through organic growth and/or follow-on acquisitions, and;
- Most importantly, provide company management with ready access to professionals and partners with deep, demonstrated knowledge and experience in dealing with virtually every imaginable business challenge encountered when growing in the energy services industry
We can be very flexible with the actual structure of our investment. We seek to understand the needs and objectives of the company owners and tailor a transaction to best address the particular situation. We can structure the investment as a partial buyout, a growth equity investment, a recapitalization or any combination thereof.
Typically there is some type of catalyst event that creates an opportunity for us to invest and partner with management. These catalyst events include:
- A company wishing to expand (additional capacity, new locations, new products/services) due to strong customer demand
- A company that has experienced strong growth and whose owners are seeking additional support to manage a new set of challenges with a larger business
- A company with an owner who wants to retire within 5 years and needs to start planning an exit but doesn’t want to sell the entire business and walk away
- A company with multiple owners where some want to retire and cash out while others wish to remain and keep growing the company
- A company with an opportunity to buy another business but lacking the financing to do so
- Owners wanting to diversify some of their net worth outside of the company but still wanting to keep growing the business and enjoying the financial rewards of doing so
Pelican Energy Partners provides the funding, expertise, and resources to help companies achieve extraordinary results. We seek promising companies to which we can add value by introducing best practices management and optimization strategy. Click on a logo to learn more about our portfolio companies.
