Our

Criteria

private equity for the environment

Alston Capital Partners is a private equity firm that provides long-term capital and management support to leading middle-market companies in the environmental industry. We consider all companies that provide any of a diverse range of goods, services and technologies to prevent, limit, or correct environmental damage to water, air, soil, or human health. We invest in established businesses with strong growth potential that can benefit from our financial, operational and strategic resources. We make majority or significant minority investments and then work closely with company managements to build value together. Our typical equity investment is $15 million to $75 million. We generally require a minimum of $5 million of EBITDA and have a preference for recurring revenue streams in asset light business models. However, in certain sectors we do prefer to have permitted sites, leading edge equipment and / or unique handling capabilities.
