Quantum International Income Corp. intends to seek opportunities to acquire and grow businesses in order to generate stable distributions for its shareholders, as well as to achieve overall capital appreciation. The Company will seek to acquire operating businesses with a proven track record, an opportunity for growth and whose management wishes to continue to operate the business going forward.
The Company's investment approach will be to grow through the acquisition of "platform" businesses that are consistent with its business strategy and acquisition criteria and then to continue to build revenues and earnings within these businesses. Potential acquisition targets may be private or public companies in a variety of industries, thereby allowing for diversification. Acquisition of all or a majority of the ownership of each such business is preferred. Value will be created by seeking out high growth, high margin opportunities where the acquired businesses can maintain and develop the deep knowledge, expertise and understanding of their customers' needs required to deliver superior service and command higher pricing and margins than the competition.
