Lotus Innovations, the fast-growing private equity investment firm focused on transforming underperforming Enterprise IT Services companies into software-based companies, commented today on a report released by global advisory firm Probitas about two key investment trends in private equity firms: the continued strength of technology opportunities among early-stage companies and the value of embedded operational expertise. Lotus Innovations’ core strategy has leveraged both trends to early success since the investment firm’s founding in 2014.

“Lotus Innovations delivers investor results through winning strategies: tight tech focus and embedded expertise.”

“Probitas’ annual market report confirms the fundamental strategies that Lotus Innovations was founded on: a tight focus on technology opportunities in the early-stage sector, supported by embedded operational expertise,” said Christian Mack, Managing Director of the Lotus Innovations Fund. “This research validates that technology-focused investments continue to lead the PE market (29%); that early-stage companies are the sweet spot in the industry (39%); and that an overwhelming percentage (68%) believe embedded operational expertise is the best approach to success.”

“It is the same window of opportunity confirmed by Probitas’ research that validates Lotus Innovations’ own successful strategy for delivering solid investor results– creating unique opportunities from early stage technology companies and driving their success with tightly-focused embedded expert management and operational efficiency through shared services”, Mack added.

Lotus Innovations was founded in 2014 with the goal to transform underperforming Enterprise IT Professional Services companies into software-based companies. The investment company’s core philosophy is based on the strong correlation between capital infusion and advisory support. Along with Mack, four other Managing Directors head the fund: Linda Ritchie, Mark Prynn, Philip Jones and David Roman.

Lotus Innovations employs proprietary methodology and embedded management to accelerate growth and valuations for early-stage and underperforming portfolio companies. Another key to the investment company’s success is the use of a proprietary Shared Services model to help the portfolio companies become profitable more quickly without having to build out the Finance, HR, IT, & Marketing infrastructures during the early business or turn-around stages.

Lotus Innovations’ own performance garnered the company a third place position in Orange County’s most active venture capital firms as reported by The Orange County Business Journal (OCBJ). The fast-growing private equity investment firm’s focus on early-stage or underperforming IT service companies won its first appearance on the prestigious list of companies located in the heart of California’s Tech Coast region, second only to Silicon Valley’s information technology development in the State.
