Value Investing Approach
For nearly 20 years, TVV has stuck to a tried-and-true investing approach that has given us success and stability in good times and bad. We believe in driving returns by growing small businesses. We buy businesses directly from their sellers at a reasonable price using simple and prudent financing structures, incentivize management through stock ownership, and enable managers to run and grow their businesses through good business practices and through acquiring other businesses in their industry.
We seek out small-to-medium sized businesses, and avoid paying inflated prices in mega-cap deals. We stay away from hostile transactions, exotic financing structures, distressed or turnaround deals, early-stage companies, and companies exposed to major cyclical or technological risk. Simply put, we buy established, profitable companies in defensible niches with strong management teams in place.
