ACQUISITION CRITERIA

Started by Jay Fields in 2017, Philosophy LLC is a research-intensive and operationally-focused fundamental investment firm. We have participated in over $500mm of invested capital across the capital structure in public and private equity. We have $30mm+ of active equity capital as a firm, as well as an extensive capital raising network to close deals and to bring in operational expertise.

We engage primarily with large companies in helping to solve issues with wholly-owned subsidiaries: human capital, balance sheet, income statement, off-balance sheet, operational, and/or legal.

  • Size: $5 to $200 million in revenue (primarily, wholly-owned subsidiaries from large companies).


  • Earnings: Profitability not a requirement. Up to $10mm EBITDA.


  • Geographic Preference: North America (United States, Canada).


  • Characteristics: Significant recurring revenue or lack of customer concentration; primarily businesses without significant capital expenditures. Mission-critical products.


  • Industry: Agnostic.

  • Deal Structure: We are open to creative deal structures that fit the needs of the parent company—including structures outside the typical leveraged buyout approach.
