Global Value Partners (GVP) engages in sophisticated investment strategies designed to effect operational changes at target companies with the objective of substantial capital appreciation.
GVP employs a variety of tools and strategies designed to create long-term shareholder value by improving the operational characteristics of an enterprise, including:
- Communicating with senior management or directors
- Seeking representation on a company’s board of directors
- Advocating for corporate transactions
- Pursuing go-private transactions
- Exercising legal remedies available to equity owners
By effecting operational changes ourselves, we are able to control the nature and timing of the changes we believe are necessary to create long-term value. We draw on an extensive network of professionals with experience in general business, specific industries, and corporate governance.
We view equity investments as ownerships interests in underlying operating businesses. As owners, our actions are motivated by long-term operational viability and value creation rather than short-term profit realization. Consequently, our engagement often accretes favorably to all stakeholders.
