    Founded in 1995, Baker Capital is a private equity firm formed to capitalize on the dynamic opportunity in the communications industry created by deregulation, new technology, and growth of the Internet. Baker Capital makes investments primarily in communications equipment, services and applications providers. The firm seeks to achieve substantial capital appreciation while minimizing downside risk and will target significant minority or controlling equity positions in approximately 20 businesses. The firm prefers to invest in later stage companies and, to a lesser extent, earlier stage situations that have the potential for significant portfolio impact. Baker invests in growth companies at all stages of development in both Europe and North America. The firm typically seeks liquidity for each investment within a five-year period. Baker's funds under management aggregate $1.5 billion.
