Pasadena Capital Partners LLC is a Southern California-based private equity investment firm specializing in organizing, structuring and sponsoring management buyouts, going-private transactions and recapitalizations of established public and private companies in the small middle-market. Pasadena Capital Partners seeks to lead control equity investments in partnership with owner/managers in small middle-market companies headquartered throughout the United States, with an emphasis on Southern California.

Pasadena Capital Partners believes in conservatively capitalizing its portfolio companies and investing in their future growth with a medium-term outlook. We partner with management teams and our Advisory Partnership Executives who have relevant industry experience to enhance the operational and strategic resources of portfolio companies. Pasadena Capital Partners believes that this partnership approach will enable owner/managers to achieve substantial improvement in operations and to seize further opportunities that will enhance financial performance. As a result, we expect to build equity value in portfolio companies for our owner/manager partners and for our investors.

Targeted transaction types vary but include:

Traditional management buyouts of companies in ownership transition
Recapitalizations of family or founder-owned businesses
Acquisitions of non-core divisions of larger companies – “corporate orphans”
Friendly acquisitions of undervalued small-cap public companies – “public orphans”
Turnarounds on a highly selective basis

Pasadena Capital Partners was founded by Greg Annick as a continuation of the investment strategy that he successfully employed as a partner at Leonard Green & Partners, with an emphasis on small middle-market businesses.
