Platinum Equity is a global M&A&O® firm specialized in mergers, acquisitions, and operations of companies that provide mission-critical products, services, and solutions in diverse industries. We offer deep in-house resources and flexible acquisition solutions to sellers worldwide.
Our trademark strategy, M&A&O®, integrates traditional M&A with operational expertise. Throughout the transaction and transition, our in-house teams provide operational insights that guide the process. Under Platinum ownership, M&A&O helps our portfolio companies grow their businesses and unlock their potential.
Headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, we have offices in New York, Boston, and London. Our in-house business development, M&A, transition, legal, real estate, marketing, finance, and operations teams enable us to resolve complex issues quickly. Additionally, our capital strength means deals without financial contingencies, in part due to Platinum Equity Capital Partners Fund I and II: two private equity funds that endow us with $3.45 billion in capital commitments.
We structure acquisition solutions to help sellers achieve their divestiture objectives. Our sellers typically include corporate sellers shedding non-core assets, public sellers seeking to maximize shareholder value, or private sellers seeking capital and operational support. We’ve also developed alternative deal structures to meet the current capital environment. With Platinum, sellers get immediate and flexible solutions to meet their strategies.
founding in 1995, Platinum Equity has completed more
than 145 acquisitions in a broad range of market sectors. Our current portfolio includes companies in diverse industries, acquired in a range of corporate divestitures, public-to-private transactions, and transactions with private sellers. We operate each portfolio company independently with the goal of creating long-term, sustainable value.
