For fifteen years, Platinum Equity has redefined the industry with M&A&O: traditional M&A combined with operational expertise.Pioneering Vision
Standing out against usual M&A stereotypes, Platinum Equity is defined first and foremost as a creator of value by building healthy companies and unlocking their potential. From our early acquisitions to our biggest deals, we specialize in acquiring operationally complex businesses, finding undiscovered opportunity, and creating value.
Our M&A&O strategy combines M&A expertise with operational insight—a combination key to creating value that differentiates our process from that of typical buyout firms. We earned our reputation in M&A by intimately understanding the businesses of our portfolio companies and taking an active role in their operation. To this day we remain focused on fundamental operations and back-to-basics business strategies that emphasize growth and stability.
We built our portfolio by strategically acquiring and operating mission-critical businesses around the world in myriad industries. Mission-critical businesses provide the products, services, and solutions that customers rely on. It also means that stability and customer service are key to our portfolio, which is all the more reason for our operational emphasis.
With recent shifts in capital markets and enterprise values, plus increasing pressure to enhance profits, many Fortune 500 companies are turning to us for strategic divestiture solutions. Additionally, we offer strategic solutions to business owners in private transactions and successfully navigate intricate public-to-private deals with alacrity.
Platinum, Present, and Future
Since its founding by Tom Gores, Platinum has never set boundaries, and we have never let ourselves be limited by others’ perceptions. Strategic, committed, disciplined, and—skilled, Platinum has built a business without limits.
