    Fertitta Capital is a private investment firm founded by Frank Fertitta III, Lorenzo Fertitta and Nakisa Bidarian. The Firm has a permanent capital base, and invests throughout a business' lifecycle and across the capital structure in consumer-facing companies in the technology, media and entertainment sectors. Specific focus areas include content creation and distribution, health & wellness, hospitality, leisure, operationally-intensive real estate, and sports. The Fertitta brothers have a long history of building some of the most successful companies in industries in which they have invested and operated. Most recently, in 2016, they sold (for $4B) Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) to WME|IMG, Silver Lake Partners and KKR, in what was the largest sports-related sale in history. That same year, they also sold Fertitta Entertainment, Inc., a gaming and leisure management company, as part of their successful IPO of Red Rock Resorts, a leading developer and operator of casino entertainment properties in the U.S.
