From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sun Capital Partners, Inc. is a private investment firm focused on leveraged buyouts, equity, debt, and other investments in market-leading companies. Sun Capital affiliates have invested in and managed more than 215 companies worldwide with combined sales in excess of $40.0 billion since Sun Capital’s inception in 1995. Sun Capital has offices in Boca Raton, Florida, Los Angeles, California, New York, New York,and affiliates with offices in London, Paris, Frankfurt, Shanghai and Shenzhen.

Sun Capital has approximately $8 billion of equity capital under management, and can invest more than $2 billion of capital in any one transaction. Sun Capital often bridges the entire purchase price at closing; raising permanent debt financing afterwards. Sun Capital is one of the very few private equity firms that has completed all transactions to which it has committed, despite the difficult economic and financing environment since 2007.

Sun Capital targets companies with up to $5 billion or more of revenues, but many of the transactions are with businesses with sales between $50 million and $500 million. Sun Capital's unique ability to close deals without external financing, staff of approximately 150 people, and decisive approach to business enables them to close deals within 30 days compared to 3 to 6 months for most other buyers. Appropriate acquisition and investment targets may include private businesses, divisions of larger companies, and publicly-traded companies. Sun Capital affiliates have also acquired and invested in businesses through bank workout groups, Chapter 11 proceedings, and from other private investment firms.

The firm's portfolio includes many regionally and nationally recognized companies, such as Bruegger's, Boston Market, Exopack, Marsh Supermarkets, Fazoli's Restaurants, Anchor Blue Clothing Company, The Limited clothing stores, ShopKo, Pamida discount store chains, Smokey Bones and Hickory Farms.

In 2006, Sun Capital announced the purchase of Marsh Supermarkets of Indianapolis, IN, the owner/operator of 128 supermarkets/food stores, and 154 Village Pantry convenience stores, among other divisions.[1]

In 2007, Sun Capital acquired majority interest in the plumbing fixture company American Standard Americas.

In 2008, Sun Capital acquired majority interest in Gordmans, a department store headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska and 25 other transactions.

In 2009, Sun Capital acquired majority interest in Lang Holdings, a leading supplier of art, design and sports driven calendars and completed a senior debt investment in Accuride Corporation and 9 other transactions.
