Our Private Equity Team
Morgenthaler Private Equity (“MPE”) invests in lower middle market leveraged buyouts, recapitalizations and build-up investments. We focus on working with family- and founder-owned businesses and corporate divestitures. Our goal is simple: to partner with industry-leading management teams, provide them with the highest possible level of support as they build their companies and create long-term shareholder value. We are focused on the lower middle market, specifically on industry-leading companies with transaction values from $25 million to $150 million and EBITDA in excess of $5 million. We are most active in two sectors: high-value manufacturing and proprietary business services. We invest in profitable, stand-alone companies, as well as divisions or subsidiaries of larger corporations. We are a committed partner, working closely with a portfolio company over the long-term to help it achieve its growth objectives through superior operating and financial performance. MPE contributes its extensive capital resources and a unique combination of strategic, operational and financial perspective. In addition, MPE draws on the expertise and relationships of the firm’s valuable network of resources including its Executive Council.
