Cadent Energy Partners is a natural resources private equity manager that invests in small to medium-sized companies in the energy industry. Cadent focuses exclusively on the energy industry. Given the complexity of the sector, we believe this high degree of specialization, together with our extensive industry network provides us with a competitive advantage in sourcing and evaluating potential investments, executing acquisitions or exit transactions, and adding tangible value to our portfolio companies.
Cadent's Principals form a highly focused team, with expertise in operations, corporate finance and in relevant technical aspects of the energy industry. Over the course of their careers, the Cadent Principals have invested over $1.1 billion in privately negotiated transactions across a broad range of energy sub-sectors. The team is distinguished by a proven track record of success in creating value through its energy investments.
We generally commit between $25 million and $75 million per investment, or more in syndication with investment partners. We provide capital to fund development of new product lines, acquisitions, geographic expansion and/or to provide partial liquidity to existing shareholders.
Cadent works closely with the management teams of its portfolio companies to assist them in creating long-term value for investors and management shareholders. Involvement with our portfolio companies is normally via the board of directors, while the day-to-day management of the business remains in the hands of management.
