SYAZUMO maintains a focused investment strategy that has been driven by the firm's background in operating and managing over 5 businesses across many sectors. Given the firm's history and background, it maintains particular expertise in the technology, telecommunications, business services, industrial, healthcare, media, and consumer & retail sectors.
SYAZUMO's team of professionals possesses all of the core competencies of a traditional corporate management team. The firm has dedicated experts in sales & marketing, accounting & tax, real estate, finance, human resources, information technology and legal. SYAZUMO's internal team can assist management, on an as-needed basis, and focus business activities in order to maximize value.
There is no "one type" of SYAZUMO deal transaction - instead, the firm is focused on non-core and attractively valued situations where it can create superior returns through its operating skills, experienced management oversight, understanding of optimal exit alternatives and speed of execution.
The firm prides itself on being opportunistic and flexible in its approach to transactions.
In structuring transactions, the firm's strategy is oriented towards protecting its capital investment. As such, in many cases, the firm provides a solution to sellers by sharing upside participation in transactions. This is just one way that SYAZUMO works with sellers to craft a transaction structure that seeks to maximize value for both parties. The combination of operating skills, flexibility and certainty to close is at the heart of SYAZUMO's investment success.
