    OpenGate Capital is an international private equity firm that acquires controlling interests in businesses with solid fundamentals which exhibit opportunities for operational improvements and growth. Established in 2005, OpenGate Capital has a global footprint with headquarters in Los Angeles and a principal office in Paris, France. OpenGate Capital is both internally and externally funded, with capital in excess of $500 million that allows the firm to: consummate transactions as quickly as 30 days without financing contingencies; and focus on an entrance strategy as opposed to the exit strategy since OpenGate does not have pre-defined holding periods and no short term contingencies regarding return of capital. OpenGates targets companies with $50 million to $1 billion in revenue; EBITDA positive, negative or break even; and broad geographical focus - North America, Europe, South America. The firm is industry agnostic (generalists).
