A “killick” is an anchor made of a long stone and sticks. Its effective and ingenious design has been relied on for centuries to secure boats and nets.
Killick Capital Inc. is a private equity investment firm headquartered in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador.
Killick invests primarily in three target sectors known to have strong industry fundamentals—sectors we know and understand from experience:
We provide capital for expansion, acquisition financing and restructuring to companies with the potential to take their businesses to a higher level—and thrive there. Whether a company is introducing new products, expanding into new markets, delving deeper in existing markets or undertaking a strategic acquisition, access to the right capital partner is a determining factor for success.
Investment should go beyond financial support. At Killick Capital, we have a passion for developing companies that will flourish. That’s why we offer industry, strategic and business development expertise to our portfolio companies.
Our aim is simple: to contribute to long-term value creation and capital appreciation.
Killick partners with experienced and entrepreneurial management teams—the people who know their businesses best. We work closely with these partners to offer strategic guidance that can help companies capitalize on opportunities, leading to strong, sustainable growth.
While Killick Capital provides proactive governance through the board of directors, responsibility for day-to-day operations remains with the incumbent management team.
