At CIVC Partners, we have learned a lot from the owners and management teams with whom we have
partnered. They have taught us that every company's path to success is unique. They have also taught us that they
are looking for a financial partner who will talk straight and deal fairly with them, one who does not depend on
financial engineering or multiple arbitrage, but one who really knows their business and rolls up their sleeves and
works hard to help them build value.
