Sun Capital Partners, Inc. is a leading private investment firm focused on leveraged buyouts, equity, debt, and other investments in market-leading companies that can benefit from its in-house operating professionals and experience.
Sun Capital affiliates invest in companies which typically have the number one or two market position in their industry, long-term competitive advantages, and significant barriers to entry. Sun Capital has offices in Boca Raton, Los Angeles and New York, and affiliates in London, Frankfurt, Paris, Luxembourg, Shanghai and Shenzhen.
Sun Capital affiliates have invested in more than 330 companies worldwide since Sun Capital’s inception in 1995, with combined sales in excess of $45 billion. On a consolidated basis, Sun Capital’s affiliated portfolio companies would rank in the top 100 of Fortune Magazine’s listing of the 500 largest companies in the United States.
Industries targeted for investment are broad and diverse, with no particular industry excluded from consideration. Investments have included companies in paper and packaging, food and beverages, metals and mining, automotive parts, consumer products, financial services, healthcare, media and communications, building products, telecommunications, technology, retailing and e-commerce, restaurants, manufacturing and industrial, among others.
Sun Capital has over $10 billion of capital under management. Sun Capital often bridges the entire purchase price at closing, raising permanent debt financing afterwards.
Sun Capital targets companies with up to $5 billion or more of revenues, but many of our transactions are with businesses with sales between $50 million and $500 million. Sun Capital’s unique ability to close deals without external financing, staff of approximately 165 people, and a decisive approach to business enables us to close deals within 30 days compared to 3 to 6 months for most other buyers.
