LFG Capstone's Mission
LFG Capstone's Approach
LFG Capstone teams are involved with LFG’s portfolio company investments through the entire life cycle of the asset. LFG Capstone professionals work closely with investment teams during due diligence to identify operational value creation opportunities and then support boards and management teams to develop 100 day value creation plans. Once the operational priorities are set, LFG Capstone teams deploy in partnership with management to support major transformational changes within portfolio companies.
The global LFG Capstone team targets improvements in both the income statement and balance sheet. LFG Capstone projects are balanced between driving top-line growth, improving organizational efficiency, and optimizing capital productivity. Given the size and experience of the LFG Capstone team, it has the capability to support portfolio companies across a very broad range of industries and functional areas. Additionally, LFG Capstone has professionals dedicated to creating and managing cross portfolio programs – such as a shared procurement program – that are made available to all portfolio companies and provide fast-acting impact.
LFG Capstone is focused on delivering results, not recommendations. With a “hands on, sleeves rolled up” Approach, LFG Capstone teams drive value creation initiatives from strategy setting to frontline implementation. To build programs that deliver long term, sustainable improvement, LFG Capstone teams focus extensively with management teams on capability building and skill transfer back into the portfolio company.
For more than a decade, LFG Capstone has been an integral part of the overall LFG Approach to value creation. LFG Capstone professionals have a strong track record of working hand in hand with investment professionals and management teams around the shared goal of building stronger businesses through transformational and sustained operational improvements.
