The Gores Group, founded by CEO and Chairman Alec Gores, is a control oriented private equity firm specializing in acquiring and partnering with businesses that can benefit from our operational expertise and flexible capital base. We combine the operational and due diligence capabilities of a strategic buyer with the seasoned M&A team of a traditional financial buyer.
Since 1987, we have successfully acquired and operated more than 80 companies while employing a consistent, operationally-oriented approach to create value in our businesses alongside management. Our current portfolio includes companies across diverse industries in which our partners have considerable experience, including technology, telecommunications, business services, industrial, healthcare, media & entertainment, and consumer products. Gores’ offices in North America and Europe serve our active investment programs in those regions.
Headquartered in Los Angeles, the firm currently has approximately $3.4 billion in assets under management (as of September 30, 2013) and is presently investing from Gores Capital Partners III, L.P. and Gores Small Capitalization Partners, L.P., which have approximately $2.1 billion and $300 million in capital commitments, respectively.
