We believe in the alignment of interests among our various stakeholders, including Onex, its shareholders, the limited partners and Onex management. The Company is the largest limited partner in each of its funds, which aligns Onex’ interests with those of its Limited Partners. Onex’ distinctive ownership culture requires the management team to have a significant ownership in Onex and to invest meaningfully in each operating business we acquire. At June 30, 2015, the Onex management team:
- Is the largest shareholder in Onex, with a combined holding of approximately 24 million shares or 23 percent of outstanding shares;
- Has a total cash investment in Onex’ current operating businesses of approximately $330 million;
- Has a total investment at market in Onex' credit platform of approximately $290 million; and
- Is required to reinvest 25 percent of all Onex Partners carried interest and Management Investment Plan distributions into Onex shares until they individually have an ownership of at least one million shares and hold these shares until retirement.
We believe that our superior track record is a direct result of this strong alignment.
