    Description:

    Thoma Bravo is a successor to the firm of Golder Thoma & Co. established in 1980. Golder Thoma originated the 'consolidation' or 'buy and build' investment strategy which sought to combine the best of venture investing with the best of leveraged buyouts by investing in a 'platform' business in a fragmented industry, and then working with management to transform it into a larger and more profitable business through internal growth and a series of strategic, industry consolidating acquisitions. Thoma Bravo's strategy has been refined through nine private equity investment funds representing almost $4 billion in committed capital. The firm seeks to invest in established companies that have a history of profitability, earnings (EBITDA) greater than $10 million, and a strong management team with a record of accomplishment. Thoma Bravo's principal focus is on companies headquartered in the U.S., but the firm can invest elsewhere as well. Thoma Bravo's investments can be in the form of take-private transactions, buy-outs, management buy-outs, recapitalizations, roll-overs of a portion of existing equity, and growth equity investments. The firm's usual equity commitment is at least $25 million and can be as large as $200 million or more. Thoma Bravo invests across multiple industries, currently with a particular focus on enterprise and infrastructure software, education, distribution, financial services and consumer goods and services. The firm does not invest in new inventions or technologies, developmental products or services, business start-ups, the biological sciences, motion pictures, distressed businesses, oil and gas or real estate.
