WAUD CAPITAL PARTNERS IS A GROWTH-FOCUSED MIDDLE MARKET PRIVATE EQUITY FIRM
Throughout our history, our approach has remained consistently focused on partnering with exceptional management teams to build sector- leading companies. With approximately $3.2 billion of committed capital raised since our inception in 1993, WCP has the experience to work collaboratively with great management teams to take businesses to the next level of profitable growth. Adhering to our disciplined and relationship-focused approach, we are committed to creating significant shareholder value for our investors and partners.
SCALING GROWTH COMPANIES
WCP invests in companies with proven business models and long-term growth potential. We look for opportunities where we can bring our company-building experience to create industry leaders in growing markets. Over the years we have completed more than 325 growth-oriented investments, and have developed expertise in helping companies scale in order to capitalize on their potential. Throughout our history, we have successfully developed portfolio companies into market leaders.
We target companies in large markets with strong secular growth trends which require deep sector expertise to be successful. Our team of twelve senior investment professionals and five operating partners has deep industry expertise in Healthcare Services, Technology and Business Services, and can help management teams execute on value creation strategies that accelerate the trajectory of their companies.
Because of our focus on partnering closely with management teams, we work on creating a value creation plan together from the start of the relationship. In order to execute on those plans, we provide our companies with access to dedicated resources focused on talent acquisition, strategic M&A sourcing and execution, and industry expertise from operating partners who are leading executives in their respective fields.
In addition to partnering with already outstanding management teams at high-quality companies, WCP also partners directly with CEOs who are industry leaders to identify, acquire and build market-leading companies through acquisitions and organic growth. WCP typically commits up to $150 million of equity capital to such partnerships on the basis of a strong investment thesis, even before an initial platform acquisition is identified, and works with the CEO to identify and acquire the initial platform company together.
