Business Overview

Thomas H. Lee Partners, L.P. (“THL”) is a premier private equity firm investing in middle market growth companies, headquartered primarily in North America, exclusively in four sectors: Consumer, Financial Services, Healthcare and Technology & Business Solutions. We couple our deep sector expertise with dedicated internal operating resources to transform and build great companies of lasting value in partnership with management. Since 1974, we have raised more than $25 billion of equity capital, invested in over 150 companies and completed more than 400 add-on acquisitions representing an aggregate enterprise value at acquisition of over $200 billion. With dedicated sector and operating teams, THL brings deep domain expertise and resources to build great companies by helping to accelerate growth, improve operations and drive long-term sustainable value in partnership with management.

We invest across targeted sub-sectors within our four core industry sectors. THL investing and sourcing processes are driven by three principles: early identification of attractive sectors within our industry verticals, a proactive approach to companies within those sectors and partnering with management teams where THL can provide material value-add to the company. THL has utilized our industry focus and domain-specific knowledge, combined with our operating resources and large sourcing organization to develop Identified Sector Opportunities. Each ISO as represented below is researched and approved by our Investment Committee.

Our global investor base includes some of the world’s leading public and corporate pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, financial institutions, endowments and high net worth families. This diversified investor base is a valuable asset, providing additional co-investment capital as well as insight and relationships useful to our portfolio companies. The long-standing relationships we have with our investors are a cornerstone of our business model.
