GEM acquires majority stakes in operating companies by recapitalizing balance sheets, executing management or leveraged buyouts, carving out assets, or outright acquisition of controlling shareholders' interests with equity. GEM prefers to partner with management teams and operators and with them execute strategic plans and create value.
GEM places capital into public and private companies that use the investment to fund growth, expansion, or restructurings. Minority placements enable companies to tap into alternative sources of capital, especially important when public market offerings are either not possible or accessible at a very high cost.
