Parallel Investment Partners was founded in 1999 to create the industry leading private equity firm dedicated exclusively to the needs of growing companies in North America's lower middle-market. Companies in this market - typically with revenues between $10 - $100 million - comprise over 90% of independent, private U.S. companies and continue to represent enormous potential for equity value creation. Since 1992, the principals of the firm have successfully completed over 35 private equity investments in lower middle-market growth companies. We combine our extensive investment experience with the involvement of seasoned operating partners to provide more than just capital to the companies in which we invest. As one of the original growth company investment firms focused on the lower middle-market, we have achieved an industry-leading position among firms with this market focus.
Centrally located in Dallas, Texas, with over $400 million of institutional private equity capital commitments, we target equity investments of $10 - $25 million. We sponsor Recapitalizations, Buyouts and Growth Capital Investments, typically partnering with companies with historical profitability and at least $3 million in annual cash flow. Beyond simply providing equity capital, we have the knowledge, experience and resources to make entrepreneurial vision become a reality.
