Partnering with Private Equity

Ascent maintains close, ongoing relationships with our Equity Partners and has a unique understanding of their investment criteria, current objectives, preferred industries, and available transaction structures. This knowledge allows Ascent to match executives and strategies with the best equity partner. These firms each manage from $500 million to well over $2 billion in capital.

Ascent's partners have significant equity capital, strong banking relationships, and successful track records for following through and completing successful transactions. Our combined experience and depth of resources allow us to respond quickly to opportunities. As a result, our companies can become leaders in their respective industries, achieving substantial market share and sustainable growth.

Ascent's Equity Partners also have established reputations for treating management teams, sellers and employees fairly. Executive Partners and management teams have significant equity positions in the companies that we build together. In making all initial and follow-on acquisitions, our Equity Partners understand the personal and business objectives of entrepreneurs and offer a broad range of creative transaction structures to meet the company's investment objectives as well as the needs of acquisition candidates.
