Buyouts and Minority Investments
TA partners with managers of growth companies to help build outstanding businesses. We focus on profitable businesses with strong management teams. We also provide flexible financial structures that are driven by company and management objectives as described more fully in the Transaction Types section.
In general, our investment profile can be summarized as follows:
TA’s ownership position has ranged in recent years from 15% to 90%, but we are an active, lead investor regardless of our ownership. We are comfortable in minority or majority positions. Whatever our ownership position, TA leaves the day-to-day operations to you. We recognize that outstanding companies are built by great executives, not great investors.
TA has developed an extensive network of contacts in our targeted industries over the past 45 years that is readily available to our portfolio companies. These relationships are resourced to assist you in recruiting additional management and board members, provide valuable market intelligence in those industries, and present strategic business opportunities, including mergers, acquisitions or divestitures when appropriate. With our successful track record, we also have built a comprehensive network within the financial community that is utilized to assist you in accessing the capital markets.
Our investments range from $50 million to $500 million in equity and $10 million to $50 million in subordinated debt transactions that value businesses generally from $150 million to $3 billion.
