Our aim is to build earnings – to build cash flow – to build value. Liberty Partners and our management teams attain these goals time and time again – an achievement that is rewarding to all concerned.
Liberty Partners is a New York-based private equity investment firm that has committed over $1 billion to more than 45 investments. Founded in 1992 by former executives of Merrill Lynch Interfunding, Liberty specializes in middle-market private equity investments in manufacturing, business services, and education-related companies.
Our senior investment professionals have worked together for nearly ten years and hold an average of three decades of finance and private equity experience. We possess deep experience in successfully sourcing, managing, and exiting equity, subordinated debt, and senior debt investments through a range of economic cycles and market conditions. To date, we have completed more than 45 management buyouts, recapitalizations, and growth investments and currently manage a portfolio of 15 active investments.
Liberty typically seeks to deploy $20 million to $75 million of equity for controlling or substantial-minority positions in North American-based companies through a range of transaction structures – leveraged buyouts, corporate divestitures, recapitalizations, going-privates, build-ups, and growth financings. In selected cases, we can also bridge any required senior and subordinated financing to close transactions quickly, confidentially, and with minimal impact on normal business operations.
