KPS Capital's investment strategy targets companies with strong franchises that are experiencing operating and financial problems. The firm invests their capital concurrently with a turnaround plan predicated on cost reduction, capital investment, capital availability, and in some situations, the introduction of new management. The turnaround plan is typically accompanied by a financial restructuring of the company's liabilities.
