Our Goals

Onex’ business objective is to create long-term value for shareholders and to have that value reflected in its share price. Our strategies to deliver this value are concentrated on (i) acquiring and building industry-leading businesses and (ii) managing and growing fund investor capital in our private equity and credit platforms.

Grow Onex’ Capital per Share by 15% per Year

The performance of our private equity portfolio has been, and will continue to be, the primary driver of Onex’ net asset value growth. Over more than 30 years we have generated a 28% gross IRR on our realized, substantially realized and publicly traded investments. At December 31, approximately 60% of Onex’ capital is invested in private equity, 11% is invested in non-investment grade credit and the balance is held in cash and other investments.

We believe we can double our net asset value per share over five years because of our experience, our investing culture and our consistent approach to value creation.

Grow fee-generating assets by 10% per year

As the result of our successful track record, we have attracted fund investors from around the world who entrust us to invest their capital alongside ours. Today, Onex manages nearly $21 billion of fee-generating capital.

As we reach our goals over the long term, we believe Onex’ shares will reflect both the growth in our net asset value and the profitability of managing investments for our fund investors.
