“Greg Tooth says now is a great time for investors looking to acquire SMEs at bargain prices… Tooth is a co-founder of Equicapita, a Calgary-based private equity fund that specializes in buying SMEs in the “nano gap”: companies worth $2 million to $20 million. According to a report by Deloitte, these firms are, for the most part, too small to attract the established mid-market private-equity players and too big to attract ad-hoc networks of high net worth people such as angel investors.

“Equicapita believes that SME private-equity investors are heading into a very compelling decade for returns,” says Tooth.””
