The IKMF-I provides growth capital to generate exceptional returns for its investors as well as for the investee Companies.
Our thorough assessment of market, industry, regulatory, environmental risks kicks off the process of evaluation. However, the most critical risk relates to the DNA of the entrepreneur. Forum Synergies, with its robust business leadership and operating track record in the Indian industry, has unique and sharp capabilities to assess and mitigate this risk.
Target companies would generally be successful, high growth companies that seek a quantum improvement in their performance. The entrepreneurs should seek to retain a significant interest in the business, to maintain and grow their culture & identity. We believe that it is important to recognise the entrepreneurial passion that drives value creation in high growth companies, and nurture it.
The focus is on companies where Forum Synergies has the opportunity to add value, provide business leadership and operating expertise and use our networks to bring about a step change in company’s performance and growth.
A critical prerequisite is for the promoters & management of the Investee Company to be open to a close and vigorous partnership. The objective is to build synergistic partnerships which create value for all stakeholders.
Demonstrating a sustainable and high earnings growth is the key to drive valuation and therefore our focus is to provide strategic and business direction across functions and in varied business situations and put in place disciplines, which promote the development of clear market leadership, with a demonstrable record for explosive revenue and earnings growth.
