Investment Groups
MSD’s Private Capital Group seeks to deploy capital in outstanding businesses with world-class management teams. The business knowledge and experience of our investment professionals and our broad network in business and the financial sector allow us to provide a level of added value to our portfolio companies. We seek to develop solid, long-term partnerships with management teams, investment partners and capital sources.

The Private Capital Group invests in established public and private companies through privately-negotiated transactions, including:
  • Buyouts of private companies and divisions of public or private companies;
  • Acquisitions of public companies through going private transactions; and
  • Purchases of equity or mezzanine securities from public or private companies seeking capital or individuals/families/investors seeking liquidity on existing investments.
Transaction examples include leveraged and management buyouts, going private transactions, mezzanine debt and other structured investments, PIPEs and growth equity financings, platform acquisitions and roll-ups, and partnerships with other investors.

Our broad investment mandate and permanent, flexible capital base allows us to creatively structure and execute transactions. Our investment time horizons and decisions are not influenced by the restrictions of typical fund arrangements or the pressures of fund raising. We can participate at various levels within the capital structure and are willing to make both growth and control investments across a variety of industries. We have a streamlined investment process that enables rapid decision-making and certainty of close.

MSD Capital typically invests $100 million - $250 million in equity per transaction; however, we will consider larger or smaller opportunities depending on the particular investment profile. Inquiries should be sent to: Private Capital Inquiries.
