    Tom Gores founded Platinum Equity in 1995 with the intent to acquire, transition, and create significant value in non-core or underperforming divisions of Fortune 1000 corporations. Headquartered in Los Angeles, CA with offices in New York, Boston, and London, Platinum has closed over 115 acquisitions that represent $30 billion in aggregate annual revenue at the time of acquisition. The firm's current portfolio includes companies in diverse industries, acquired in a range of corporate divestitures, public-to-private transactions, and transactions with private sellers. Platinum created the M&A&O approach to improve the operational success of financial acquisitions, and the Platinum team continues this commitment each day. Platinum employs over 100 in-house specialists. Platinum Equity Capital Partners Funds I and II have $3.45 billion in capital commitments.
