Beaconhouse is an entrepreneurial firm that was founded to fulfill two missions: to build and grow great businesses and produce exceptional risk-adjusted returns for our investors.

Beaconhouse Capital Management is headquartered in New York City and has a team of experienced professionals with diverse backgrounds. Saquib Toor, a Wharton MBA graduate, is a co-founder and leads the investment team. Pavel Smyshlyaev, a Swarthmore College graduate with a background in mathematics and economics, is also a co-founder and focuses on investment and financial operations. Nazish Agha leads the legal and transaction team, while Jay Jafar focuses on finance and Andreas Klarmann leads manufacturing. Dr. Nasir Siddiqui, Chairman of Radiology at Duly Health & Care, serves as an independent advisor to the firm.

BCM's investment strategy is to acquire under-performing lower middle-market companies that are facing operational or financial challenges. The firm seeks to generate outsized, risk-adjusted returns across all market environments by taking an active role in the management and operations of the companies they invest in.

BCM has a flexible approach to structuring complex transactions and seeks opportunities to acquire companies through forced sales, bankruptcies, pre-bankruptcy restructurings, corporate carveouts, and family generational transitions. They also source proprietary deal flow from workout relationships, bankruptcy filings, trustee relationships, and marketed loan sale portfolios.

BCM targets companies with negative EBITDA up to $20 million and enterprise values up to $150 million, with a focus on manufacturing, healthcare, or service industries. They typically invest $10-30 million of equity capital per investment and look for companies facing challenged situations such as changes in competitive intensity, founder transitions, c-suite challenges, and over-levered balance sheets that do not provide flexibility for growth.

The firm has completed four platform investments and several follow-on acquisitions with a total transaction value of over $30 million. Recent transactions include TPG Plastics LLC's acquisition by iPACKCHEM Group SAS, Carbon Polymers Co.'s purchase of Buckeye Polymers, Inc.'s assets, and the acquisition of North American operations of Pollmann International
