Metalmark Capital has an extensive and proven record of making control investments in middle market businesses and growing them through acquisitions, internal investments and operational improvements.
We employ fundamental research, our knowledge of specific industries, proprietary relationships and partnerships with management teams to make investments in middle market companies — or to build large-scale companies by making multiple acquisitions from a single platform. We believe our disciplined application of this approach creates an information or knowledge-based advantage throughout the investment process.
Notably, our focus on platform investing — building a company from scratch or transforming a small company and taking it to the next level — sets us apart in the private equity world.
We target industries that are undergoing change or that are otherwise out-of-favor, using our information advantage to help us capitalize on secular changes in industries — increased demand for new or existing products, consolidation, regulatory changes, increased prevalence of outsourcing and distress — along with company-specific dynamics such as capital constraints.
