From steady-state buyouts to turnarounds to "off the beaten path" opportunities, we bring deep investment skills, experience, operational and management expertise.
Our investments span a range of industries including financial services, travel and entertainment, technology, industrials, retail, consumer products, media and communications, and healthcare.
Across these industries we have developed a broad set of capabilities that supports multiple investment strategies. Our portfolio consists of three major transaction types:
Traditional steady buyouts: we support growth in firms with leading brands, high market shares and strong management teams. Examples include Beringer Wine Estates, Findexa, Neiman Marcus, PETCO and SunGard.
Turnarounds: we transform firms through heavy involvement from our deal professionals and operational experts. Examples include J.Crew, Graphic Packaging, Burger King, Grohe and Myer.
"Off the beaten path" minority investments and partnerships: we use our sector experience and industry relationships to create unique, proprietary opportunities. Examples include Endurance, Lenovo, Eutelsat, and mobilcom.
TPG's differentiated approach has led to distinctive specialized industry knowledge and deep relationships spanning many industries, allowing us to identify and approach companies that might not otherwise be available for investment.
A key element of TPG's success is the ability to add operating value at each of our diverse portfolio companies. We devote significant resources to this capability, attracting experienced, full-time operating professionals, a network of world-class executives, and affiliated senior advisors dedicated to enhancing the operations of portfolio companies and cultivating effective management teams.
This operational and management expertise enables TPG to pursue turnaround opportunities that others are often unwilling to consider. We have an extensive track record of undertaking investments involving distressed financial situations and management turnarounds.
