Partners Private Equity (PPE) is focused on acquisitions of established lower middle market businesses in sectors such as manufacturing, value added distribution and business services.

In general we want to invest in companies that we can visit in a day trip by either road or air.

We are primarily focused on middle market buyout transactions but will also pursue opportunistic special situations opportunities in unique circumstances. Transaction types include leveraged buyouts, corporate carve-outs, restructurings and selective minority investments.  In general, our goal in any of these transaction types is to acquire an ownership stake in a viable, established business at a fair valuation.
