ReichmannHauer Capital Partners

About

ReichmannHauer Capital Partners (RHCP) is a private investment firm of active investors and business builders. Our principal orientation is to be highly active, yet patient owners, driving lasting strategic and operational improvements and strong financial returns.

RHCP proactively seeks unique investment opportunities that match one or more of our proprietary value creation themes. Following an intensive due diligence process, we seek to acquire control or significant influence over target businesses. This proprietary diligence process always involves building a value creation blueprint for the company, which outlines how we expect to grow its value over a 3-5 year horizon.

Following the closing of a transaction, our team continues the process of co-creating a more detailed version of the blueprint with management, including a granular 100 day plan to set investee organizations on faster and more profitable trajectories. We begin executing these plans immediately after our transactions are closed, and where possible, before closing.

Over the life of an investment, RHCP’s notion of “active ownership” goes far beyond just participating in Board and management meetings or planning major corporate decisions. RHCP acts as a full value creation partner, assisting teams with more granular management challenges. Some of these challenges include reviewing and implementing strategy, budgeting processes, and optimizing sales coverage models and incentives.

Philosophically, RHCP was founded on the idea of “winning together”. We believe in the power and importance of the right incentives. We have designed our firm, both in the relationships between our own people and in the relationships we have with investee organizations, so that each of us has clear and strong incentives to pursue the same goals.

Strategy

By starting our investment process with our RHCP value creation themes, RHCP ensures that value creation is our focus from the very beginning. Nearing the time when a transaction will be closed, our work is simply to begin deepening and refining our thinking around the value creation theme that originally led us to an investment opportunity.

As soon as a transaction has been consummated, we begin the process of building successive versions of our value creation blueprints for an investee organization.

The value creation blueprint is an action plan for the company that will help management set a new trajectory for their organization. Importantly, RHCP co-creates these value creation blueprints with company management, since these are the individuals who will be responsible for executing the plans.

The value creation blueprint is a living document, and successive versions are refined and updated through the closing process, frequently throughout the company’s first year as an RHCP company, and periodically throughout the life of the organization’s affiliation with RHCP.
