Alloy makes growth capital investments in Mexican middle market companies that can take advantage of Mexico’s growth and demographics, and we partner with these companies during the expansion stage, providing them with capital and strategic support. Unlike most other sources of capital available in Mexico, at Alloy, we evaluate companies based on their cash flow, growth potential, and the management team’s reputation.
We look for capable management teams with actionable business plans that will generate strong free cash flow that is capable of returning principal plus capital gains. We invest between US$ 3 million and US$ 10 million in each company.
Alloy provides flexible capital that enables growth without taking control away from the owners. We work with business owners and managers and align our interests. We believe management teams should have “skin in the game” and, ideally, a meaningful ownership position.
Unlike typical private equity firms, we don’t need the companies to have a clear path to liquidity, and we don’t require business owners to commit to a business sale in the future.
