About Us

FlatWorld Capital provides financing solutions to middle-market companies in North America and emerging markets. We focus on higher value-added companies in niche markets with high barriers to entry.

The FlatWorld team works closely with management to grow portfolio companies into larger, global companies with industry-leading market positions, greater growth prospects, and superior profitability. We assist management in:

• accelerating growth by providing access to capital for strategic growth initiatives and add-on acquisitions
• improving margins by developing the optimal use of onshore and offshore resources
• entering new, high-growth international markets

We welcome a continuing equity involvement by the former owners and we incentivize management with significant equity participation. We structure our investments to provide the capital resources and financial flexibility to:

• fund strategic growth plans and acquisitions
• acquire divisions of larger companies through spin-offs or joint ventures
• participate in negotiated or auction sales of private or publicly traded companies
• recapitalize over-levered companies (or buy operating assets out of a restructuring)
