Investing in companies that strengthen and diversify the communications industry for rural America.
GP Investments, Inc. was created by Great Plains Communications to fulfill a strategic goal: to invest in companies that provide diversification to complement the core communications businesses that have been successfully operated for over 100 years.
We consider opportunities to invest in a variety of businesses at all stages of growth, including:
- Acquiring a majority stake or influential minority position
- Providing equity or debt capital for expansion
- Working with a talented management team to fund acquisitions
- Recapitalizing a business to provide liquidity to existing investors and lenders
We invest at reasonable valuations and use moderate-to-low leverage. This gives us the ability to thoughtfully and patiently grow and improve businesses through all types of economic cycles. GP Investments requires that management have a stake in the business, and our investment returns are generated from working as a team to build fundamentally sound entities through growth and improvement.
