Falcon As Investor
Given our core business as a mezzanine investor, Falcon is often a lender to and a minority equity owner of its portfolio companies. As such, Falcon plays a role in developing each portfolio company’s strategic initiatives. In other words, Falcon can influence the attitude and behavior of its portfolio companies.
Falcon will communicate its CSR vision to each portfolio company’s management team and the company sponsor and will encourage complete transparency and disclosure on CSR topics. We believe that doing so will promote sustainability and good corporate citizenship. We further believe that portfolio companies that implement their own CSR programs as part of executing their core business strategies will distinguish themselves to their own customer, supplier, employee, government and investor communities. Such actions may, in the future, have positive implications for the value of these businesses and, therefore, the value of Falcon’s investments.
