Large Cap Resources. Lower Middle Market Focus.
As Platinum Equity’s resources and access to capital have grown over the last 20 years, the firm’s focus on investing in the Lower Middle Market (LMM) has never wavered. Today a dedicated team of Platinum Equity LMM deal professionals remains nested inside the firm’s broader organizational structure and benefits from the entire firm’s experience, track record and operational resources.
Resources and Access to Capital.
The LMM M&A team draws on the same global in-house resources used in all of the firm’s transactions. Those resources include a robust operations team that works with LMM M&A to go deep into the details from the very beginning of a process. LMM investments are funded out of Platinum Equity Capital Partners IV, a $6.5 Billion buyout fund. Having access to this capital allows the LMM team to close deals with speed and certainty.
