Linear invests in a broad range of maturing, high-growth companies in both the domestic and international markets. Generally, Linear will act as the sole investor in the first round. We typically target and invest in companies that we believe will achieve profitability as a result of our investment. Linear also invests in companies that have already achieved profitability. Under certain circumstances, Linear will invest in distressed companies if the technology or products associated with that company are commercially viable and supported by a strong management team.
Our strategy is to locate, identify and qualify companies that meet our specific investment criteria. We then fund and build those companies to provide us with a substantial return on investment and to increase shareholder value.
