Permanent Capital Base

Compass Diversified (NYSE: CODI) is a publicly-traded investment and holding company that provides shareholders with unique access to niche middle-market businesses – an attractive segment of the market historically reserved for traditional private equity or other legacy players.

Leveraging its permanent capital base, long-term, disciplined approach, and actionable expertise, CODI partners with leading management teams to build businesses while unlocking significant value for shareholders.

About Us

Since its founding in 1998, CODI has consistently executed on its strategy of making controlling investments in a diverse set of highly defensible, middle-market businesses across the niche industrial and branded consumer sectors.

Team

Our proven management team brings actionable expertise developed over two decades of value-creation and driving transformational change.

Our Long-Term Approach

CODI is a business builder, not an asset trader. Unlike traditional private equity players, whose investment decisions may be driven by a fund’s lifespan instead of fundamentals, our permanent capital structure provides a competitive advantage, enabling us to be more patient in how we acquire, actively manage and opportunistically divest leading middle market businesses.

With no set timeline to deploy capital or harvest investments, CODI is committed to making the right decisions to drive long-term value for our subsidiaries and shareholders.

Strong Portfolio

We look to acquire companies that we could own indefinitely and exhibit a clear “reason to exist” within their market segment.

A Culture of Outperformance

Compared to both publicly-traded peers and market indices, CODI has consistently generated superior returns through its culture of transparency, alignment and accountability. Since the Company’s IPO in 2006, CODI has realized more than $1.1 billion of gains from its subsidiary businesses.

CODI has also consistently paid a quarterly cash distribution since 2011 and has never reduced it, even amidst the global financial crisis.

Note: Total Return assumes reinvestment of distributions.
