Our Principles

Long Term Perspective and Discipline

Lantern’s experience reinforces the belief that risks and opportunities change constantly across cycles and that the best opportunistic situations take time and discipline, and will remain difficult to time and predict. By building and maintaining a local perspective, a strong team and a sustainable organization we can leave companies better than we found them.

Focus on Execution

As the key to building and protecting asset value – not just the structuring and timing of a transaction. Senior management and advisors of Lantern are involved through the duration of every project.

Solid Track Record

Lantern has a strong track record of maximizing returns for all stakeholders through a combination of operational and balance sheet improvements.


Strong Alignment of Interest

Commitment to remaining a value-oriented, high service asset management firm where senior executives invest personally in all transactions versus a focus on simply being a fee-for-service or asset-light manager.

Established Network of Relationships

Professionals at Lantern have developed deep relationships from years of experience across a number of world-class firms and numerous industries.  Our continual focus on developing and maintaining these relationships provides a direct and meaningful benefit to our portfolio companies.
