Platinum Equity is a global M&A&O® firm, founded by Tom Gores

Platinum Equity is a global M&A&O® firm, founded by Tom Gores, 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. 

In-House Resources

Headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, we have offices in Boston, Greenwich, New York, London, and Singapore. Our in-house business development, M&A, transition, legal, real estate, marketing, finance, and operations teams enable us to resolve complex issues quickly. 

Acquisition Solutions

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.

Creating Value

Since its founding in 1995, Platinum Equity has completed 300+ 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.
