About Atlantic

Atlantic Growth Capital focuses on investing in and partnering with businesses in Australia and New Zealand to support their growth and expansion plans.

We have a flexible mandate and partnership approach. We are able to participate as a significant minority or as a controlling shareholder on a case by case basis.

Our co-investors include highly successful Australian and international business leaders, and their family wealth offices.

We offer capital solutions for:

► Growth and expansion including capex investment, channel expansion, and enhancing export capabilities
► Founder succession
► Buyout of legacy and ‘no longer value adding’ minority shareholders
► Supporting existing or new management to buy into the business
► A combination of the above

We work with our partners to assist our companies in establishing strong expansion and export capabilities

We assist with complimentary and synergistic acquisitions to diversify channel, customer, and product exposure and increase scale

We consider most sectors but generally exclude venture or start up, property, primary resources

Synergies include new channel distribution, export resources and contacts, supply chain and sourcing, manufacturing, logistics, and back office functions
