Welcome to Broadline Capital
Founded in 2005, Broadline Capital is a global alternative investment firm primarily focused on impact investments and growth capital in North America and Asia. At Broadline, we're inspired by champions — people of vision and courage — whose ideas can positively change the world, and who are ready to transform their ideas into the next big, industry-changing company.
When evaluating opportunities, we seek category leaders and category creators that are reshaping their industries. We prefer highly-charged sectors in which innovation, growth, strong margins, and market fragmentation are yielding abundant investment opportunities. We look for companies that are well-positioned to thrive as the world continues to transition toward an economy increasingly driven by innovation, healthy living, and the pursuit of a more efficient and sustainable way of life. Successful candidates are typically led by management teams who can benefit from Broadline’s established platform, access to industry expertise, and vast network of relationships built over many years.
Broadline’s transaction leaders have spent their entire careers building trust-based relationships globally. They have led some of the most creative deals in the history of their market categories. Their collective experience and relationships help assure that Broadline-sponsored companies have access to expertise and resources to develop to the next level.

Broadline's proprietary investment process is designed to stretch alpha at every link of the investment value chain — from transaction origination, evaluation, structuring and execution, to business planning, implementation, and financial exit realization. Our past investment success stems from our multi-channel sourcing and disciplined approach to investment selection:
First, we start with a Top-Down approach to identify highly-charged categories that are positioned to thrive and create broad impact as the world transitions toward an economy increasingly driven by innovation, healthy living, and the pursuit of a more efficient and sustainable way of life. We seek categories where innovation, growth, strong margins, and/or market fragmentation are yielding abundant investment opportunities.
Next, we take a Bottom-Up approach to identify niche category leaders and category creators who are helping to reshape their industry, and whose management teams display the credibility and readiness to benefit from Broadline's platform, relationships and expertise as they develop their business to the next level.
We believe protection of invested principal is paramount. The aim is to identify and execute deal opportunities that have above-market performance potential, while proactively working to spot and mitigate risk factors by tailoring the structure to the unique situation in each transaction. To that end, we seek uncorrelated investments by pursuing diversification across an array of industries, geographies, transaction sizes, and market capitalizations.
At Broadline, closing a deal is only the beginning. That's because our portfolio managers and operating advisors seek to provide support beyond capital, helping management teams to align with shareholder interests on a shared longterm vision for the company, then focusing on early wins by defining a first 100 Days Plan. Broadline's partners have experience helping to design pragmatic initiatives to grow revenues, increase efficiencies, and expand margins organically and through consolidation. Our investment leaders are past CEOs and entrepreneurs of successful companies where they created significant value and negotiated quality exits for themselves and their investors. They understand what it takes to build a business from the ground up, because they've been there.
Staying close to our roots as former CEOs and entrepreneurs, we love collaborating with inspired management teams who think and act differently, and who believe they are building something truly special. We aspire to be their "Investor of Choice" as they work to become a top innovator within their category.

Portfolio Example: MedTech
Non-invasive Endoscopic Medical Devices
Founded in 2006, EndoSphere is a medical technology company that has developed a first-in-class, non-invasive medical device that endoscopically treats one of the world's largest healthcare issues: Metabolic Diseases including Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes. Endosphere's flagship device, the SatiSphere™ system, is incisionless, reversible and repeatable. In clinical studies, the SatiSphere™ device has enabled obese patients to achieve significant Excess Weight Loss (EWL) without the need for surgery or medication, providing an alternative to the more invasive treatments in today's market. In contrast to traditional anti-obesity treatments such as "restrictive devices", EndoSphere's patented device represents the first of a new category of devices that function as "physiological amplifiers", meaning it uses the body's natural physiological responses to accelerate satiety and to manage appetite. Its focus is treating the Duodenum, which serves as the body's metabolic control center, playing important roles in multiple functions including digestion, appetite regulation, insulin management, and drug delivery. The first-generation version of the SatiSphere device received CE Mark regulatory approval in 31 countries in 2012, and an improved version of the product has entered the clinical stage of development. EndoSphere's portfolio of patent assets is 100% company-owned, free from any licensing or royalty obligations. The Company received the inaugural "Fierce15" award, named by FierceMedTech, which is an annual industry recognition of the world's top 15 most promising privately-held medical device innovations.

Portfolio Example: CleanTech
Innovations in Lithium-ion Battery Safety and Performance
Founded in 2010, Powermers develops patented advanced materials that increase the performance and safety of Lithium-Ion Batteries. By replacing the traditional deadweight material in cathodes (carbon and binders) with nano-scale electro-conductive polymer material, Powermers expands a battery's active material limit and reduces combustibility. Importantly, the polymer enables these performance innovations without sacrificing on weight, cost or safety. Our transition metal-based polymers are highly affordable as they contain no precious metals, yet they serve as highly-efficient catalysts and coatings that demonstrate higher catalytic functionality than pure noble-metal catalysts (including gold, platinum, and palladium). The company's technology has been independently validated by prestigious third-party battery testing labs including the US Army Corps of Engineers Battery Innovation Lab as well as the Center for Automotive Research at the Ohio State University. Powermers owns 100% of its IP asset portfolio free from any licensing or royalty obligations. For more information, please visit https://www.Powermers.com.
