About CAI

Founded in 1989, CAI is a private equity firm specializing in buyouts, restructurings, acquisitions, recapitalizations and other corporate growth initiatives. Our broad operational and financial expertise and ready access to capital position us as a valued partner for proven, motivated management teams. We acquire significant ownership positions in North American companies, then fully utilize our firm's extensive experience and resources to achieve strategic objectives. We seek to create partnerships that are uniquely capable of reaching common goals and attaining superior investment performance.

CAI has invested or placed with co-investors over $1.3 billion in equity or equity-related investments to help fund growth and corporate transition in companies throughout North America.

Special Focus on Canada
While CAI has a North American investment mandate, many of our Principals have a history of experience and expertise in Canada. CAI was founded in 1989 in part on the basis of this cross-border network, which can be invaluable for Canadian companies seeking to expand in the U.S. Many of our investments have been made in Canadian companies, and we continue to actively seek new investment opportunities in Canada.
