VII Peaks Capital has partnered with KBR to form VII Peaks-KBR an investment platform featuring investment programs utilising the VII Peaks Capital Co-Optivist approach.
The Co-Optivist approach is a proprietary strategy developed by VII Peaks Capital to acquire discounted corporate debt securities of public companies that have a perceived risk of near term liquidity issues, but that also have solid fundamentals and business prospects, including historical revenue growth, positive cash flow and sufficient asset coverage. The VII Peaks Capital Co-Optivist approach includes proactively engaging the target company’s management in order to restructure the underlying corporate debt securities and de-lever the target company’s balance sheet and improve overall liquidity.
“As KBR expands its enterprise, we will collaborate with what we believe to be the highest quality, creative and dynamic managers in a diversified range of industries. In VII Peaks, we have partnered with an exceptional team that has developed a unique strategy that accentuates our mission to provide individual investors with access to quality institutional investments”, says Vinay Kumar, Managing Partner of KBR Capital Partners.
Gurpreet Chandhoke, Managing Partner and Chief Investment Officer of VII Peaks Capital, says: “VII Peaks was founded on our Co-Optivist approach which is based on cooperation and activism for the benefit of our investors, and tangentially our target companies and the marketplace. I am confident that by leveraging the synergies and collaborative philosophies of VII Peaks and KBR we will create distinctive investment opportunities”.
Daniel Oschin (pictured), Managing Director of KBR Capital Partners, adds: “The investment marketplace is in a state of metamorphosis, in reaction to economic, regulatory and legislative challenges, as well as investor uncertainty and concerns. We believe that the VII Peaks-KBR Co-Optivist approach is part of a new paradigm that is transforming the industry.”
