Principles

What makes us Evergreen?

Stewardship
Our 100-year structure allows us to invest without the traditional constraints of private equity. We deploy our unique capital base responsibly and treat it with intention. We are accountable for each investment we make, and our capital serves to generate returns and deliver value across generations.
Cooperation
We take a holistic approach to growth, providing resources beyond capital to create equity value. We share in the challenges and successes of our partners, rolling up our sleeves alongside teams to compound value as we compound growth.
Effectiveness
We are committed to equity value creation across our portfolio in partnership with management teams. Together we emphasize operating rigor to magnify the impact of our capital, while our unique investment horizon provides flexibility to make the best decisions at the right time.
Social Responsibility
Customers and consumers expect increasing levels of transparency and accountability from consumer sector companies. We believe in a powerful alignment between investors and entrepreneurs to develop responsible long term strategies that support equity returns and positive impact on ecosystems.

Where we invest

We seek companies and teams whose motivating principle is to create long term value. As flexible capital partners we offer appropriate investment solutions for a variety of business stages. We primarily seek majority investments in profitable companies with revenues of at least $30 million. We also invest as minority partners, particularly where there is opportunity to increase our investment as the company grows.
