Portfolio

We currently have investments in eight diverse businesses. The composition of our portfolio is a function of our belief that high-quality businesses with skilled management teams can be found in a variety of sectors.

Since its inception in 2004, Krystal has exited six of its investments. While all six of these investments were successful, each business pursued its own distinct path to growth and each was unique in the time period required for its growth plans to come to fruition.
