About Seaway Valley Capital Corporation
A majority equity stake of Seaway Valley Capital Corporation ("SVCC") was acquired by current management in July 2007. SVCC makes equity and equity-related investments in companies that require expansion capital and in companies pursuing acquisition strategies. SVCC also seeks investments in leveraged buyouts and restructurings. SVCC's management team brings significant transactional experience with over forty deals valued in aggregate at well over $1 billion. SVCC will consider investment opportunities in a number of different industries including retail, restaurants and hospitality, media, business services, and manufacturing and will also consider select technology investments.
Recent acquisitions and investments have been focused on strategic retail, consumer products, and hospitality assets that complement the Company’s current core portfolio businesses and that can be further positioned for growth outside the northern New York region. The company’s current holdings are well positioned to benefit from regional tourism, which is one of the fastest growing industries in the area, and our premium retailer and consumer products are well established locally and are being positioned for growth beyond the immediate trade area.
Operationally, acquisitions are quickly integrated into Seaway Valley with a focus on: (i) assistance in refining daily operations; (ii) allocation of strategic capital if needed; (iii) integration into Seaway’s advertising and marketing programs; and (iv) access to Seaway’s accounting, purchasing and administrative functions - all with the goal of driving revenues and streamlining
