Desai Capital Management (DCM) manages institutionally-funded investment partnerships that acquire or provide equity capital to small- to medium size growth companies. They use capital provided by leading institutions, pension funds, foundations, endowments and principals of the firm.DCM employs rigorous due diligence to evaluate potential investments. They work with their operating partners and consultants to thoroughly research the dynamics of a particular industry. The firm examines all fundamental business issues facing a company with emphasis on identifying opportunities for potential growth, as well as the human and financial resources required to capitalize on them. DCM's primary focus is on the assessment of a company's management team's ability to adapt to an evolving and rapidly-changing industry environment. The firm believes opportunities are greatest where certain conditions of change exist.DCM focuses on participating in MBOs, acquisitions/recapitalizations of private companies, later-stage growth capital investments and industry consolidations. The firm's partnerships invest in US-domiciled companies primarily through common stocks or preferred stock with equity features. DCM prefers to invest in profitable companies with strong positions in well-defined markets. For growth capital investments, this earnings threshold is less important than validation of a company's business model. DCM generally does not invest in turnaround situations.
