Generally, USG provides its own direct financing to fund transactions that meet our investment criteria. When necessary, USG can arrange larger financings through its affiliations with lenders and other investment firms. USG is able to fund transactions in a wide variety of structures and industries, provided that the opportunity is clear and the reward commensurate with the risk.
USGs flexible and opportunistic investment strategy is based on its partners 80+ years experience in finance and project development. Prior to forming USG, the partners were responsible for financing and structuring transactions in various industries at leading Wall Street firms, including: Goldman Sachs, CS First Boston, Jefferies and NatWest.
USG believes that investors should provide not just capital, but expertise to re-structure enterprises, establish creditworthiness, expand businesses and unlock inherent value. USG has strategic relationships within numerous industries upon which it draws to provide partnership opportunities, contractual relationships and additional financial resources for the companies in which it invests.
USG has the capacity for technical/engineering analysis that USG uses both to evaluate new investments and to assist the companies we invest in to refine and hone their proprietary products and processes.
