Our typical investment term is three to five years. However, there are circumstances that might accelerate or delay the business plan. For instance, we could be approached by a buyer with an unsolicited offer that is so good we meet our business objectives early. Or, the market conditions are not favorable toward the end of the hold period, and thus we would delay the sale until conditions change.
