CATAPULT INVESTMENT GROUP
Catapult Investment Group, LLC (CIG), was established in June 1995 for the purposes of identifying, acquiring and operating going concerns. By drawing on the extensive operational skills of its member-mangers, CIG seeks to combine proper management and strategy with the potential opportunities of small capital ($5-25M in annual revenues), private companies, resulting in greater returns on invested capital. As compared with the passive investor approach offered by traditional investment groups, CIG actively manages the acquired company on a day to day basis, augmenting existing management, thereby offering the greatest potential reward on investment, with limited downside exposure to an investor in a diversified portfolio.
