A back-to-basics business strategy emphasizing portfolio operations.


We earned our reputation in M&A with trademark strategy: M&A&O®. M&A&O integrates traditional M&A with operational expertise. It’s what sets us apart, how we create value, and how we redefined the industry.

Simply, we provide operational insight based on a deep understanding of our portfolio companies' businesses. Throughout the deal, transition, and ownership, our in-house teams apply operational guidance and resources in order to maximize value.

M&A&O helps our portfolio companies grow their businesses, realize their potential, and makes Platinum Equity, led by Tom Gores, an attractive acquirer for sellers seeking a stable owner for a divestiture.

Our Trademark M&A&O Strategy:
  • Creates value through back-to-basics business strategies
  • Unlocks potential in companies by applying operational insights
  • Provides companies with high levels of guidance and resources
  • Differentiates Platinum Equity from typical private equity firms.
