We evaluate an opportunity by its people. Most firms evaluate opportunity by the numbers. At Philadelphia Holdings, our investment criteria are different. We start by evaluating the people behind the business. We look at every transaction differently because we are industry-agnostic. Simply put, if it's the right opportunity and involves the right people, we will move forward. We look at every aspect of the business, the back office, the culture, and most importantly, the people.

It has been this way from our inception. When the late Mudieb Mousa Haddad from the ground up almost 70 years ago, he created and instilled a culture and attitude that sill resonates today. Here, we love what we do and it's shown in the actions of every member of PH team, professionals who possess an inherent set of shared values that we pride ourselves on. In business there are always going to be problems. But we know there is a solution to every problem. Our success is constantly driven by collaboration, innovation and putting the right tools in place.

  1. Vertical and complementary horizontal opportunities that need an investment with change/growth/technology.
  2. Legacy Businesses.
  3. Entrepreneurial Operators.
  4. Businesses that can be complemented with add-ons.
  5. Businesses that have synergies with PHILADELPHIA HOLDINGS family of companies.
