About Meridian OHC LLC
Meridian OHC LLC is an externally managed specialty finance company that operates as an “Orphan Holding Company” (an “OHC”). Meridian’s investment strategy is to acquire large equity stakes in high-quality but slower growth companies that tend to be undervalued by mainstream market investors.
The companies in which Meridian will invest are generally established leaders in small niche markets. These companies, while not rapid growers, are generally profitable and able to generate strong sustainable positive cash flows that can be used to deliver high sustainable returns to their owners. By operating as an “Orphan Holding Company,” they believe Meridian’s investors can gain exposure to a portfolio of high-quality, income generating, private and public small capitalization companies while simultaneously providing their portfolio companies with a supportive lead shareholder that understands and appreciates the company’s circumstances and current opportunities.
