INVESTMENT

OUR INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY

The investment process in VAN HAIJK-CON is classic value. Put another way, we seek to buy good businesses, focusing exclusively on companies that are under performing their historically demonstrated earnings power.
The value philosophy predicates on the belief that most investors do not want to invest in businesses that are experiencing problems or are otherwise out of favor. A lack of near- term earnings visibility leads investors to significantly undervalue companies that are experiencing some form of distress, as most investors prefer to wait until a company’s current problems are resolved, or to invest in less controversial growth oriented companies.
By VAN HAIJK-CON definition, value investing requires two key elements: exposure to companies before the stock price reflects signs of obvious business improvement and significant patience. Only by purchasing in advance of clear evidence of positive momentum along with a willingness to hold for the long term, an investor can be assure of paying very low prices and therefore maximize the opportunity for superior long-term returns. In VAN HAIJK-CON we are unwavering in our discipline and commitment to deep value through all market conditions.

PRIVATE EQUITY

In VAN HAIJK-CON, our Private Equity business makes control-oriented investments in cash flow generating, asset-based businesses primarily located in Western Europe especially Belgium. The investments generally fall into core industries, which include financial services, transportation & infrastructure, Web-applications, Navigation systems within this business there are two segments, Private Equity Funds and Permanent Capital Vehicles.


Private Equity Funds
Our Private Equity Funds focus primarily on control-oriented investments in cash flow generating, asset-based businesses in Western Europe especially Belgium. The Funds seek to invest in companies and portfolios with valuable, often unique assets that in our view can benefit over time from high barriers to entry, strong, stable cash flows and attractive fundamentals. The Funds take an active approach to private equity investing, seeking situations where significant value can be unlocked and created through balance sheet restructuring, operational improvements, and strategic management. We also collaborate with management to grow our businesses organically and through acquisitions, particularly in consolidating industries.

We are value-oriented investors, and will invest in situations that may be overlooked by others, including in companies suffering from capital markets dislocation, financial distress, complexity or negative market sentiment. In order to secure the best investments, we take a flexible approach for sourcing and structuring investments, and will be involve in multifaceted transactions (including investments through the bankruptcy process).
Underlying our approach to private equity investing is our focus on capital preservation and downside protection. Even in highly volatile valuation environments, we believe that tangible collateral and diversified cash flows provide a foundation of long-term investment value, as well as a platform from which meaningful growth can be achieve.
While we are open to investments across a range of industries, our investments have focused recently on capital-intensive sectors in which we have specialized expertise: transportation and infrastructure, financial services (particularly loan servicing and consumer finance) and senior living. We believe that this focused, repeatable process gives us an advantage in pricing, owning, financing, optimizing cash flows and overseeing the management of our investments.
