Oriole Capital Group provides flexible financing solutions and expertise to support management teams in acquisitions and recapitalizations of lower mid-market aviation companies typically valued between $20 and $200 million. We identify proven management groups with unique industry positions and strong customer relationships that will benefit from our support and collaboration. We seek businesses that align with our industry experience and relationships where OCG’s participation can be transformative for establishing a platform to increase operating cash flow and long-term value creation. Oriole Capital Group can act as sole investor or leverage an extensive network of capital partners depending on objectives and transaction dynamics.

Our investment criteria typically meet the following fundamental characteristics:

  • Secured investments with strong financial recourse
  • Demonstrated cash flow and/or market demand with strong customer relationships
  • A defensible industry position with compelling risk-adjusted returns
  • An important contribution to the evolution of aviation

Aircraft Manufacturing & Modernization

We believe the current long backlog of orders is indicative of demand across the ecosystem and creates unique opportunities to meet worldwide requirements and demand.

Innovative Aviation Technologies

A new breed of aviation technologies and avionics is being driven by the same disruptive price curve and trend that cloud computing has created in other industries.

Aviation Infrastructure & Services

Supporting rapid growth in passenger and cargo volume will require innovative thinking around facilities expansion and development.
