    Founded in 2000, Blue Point has raised nearly $2.0 billion in capital across four institutional funds. The firm seeks to invest $10 million to $50 million of equity capital in middle market companies. Blue Point targets companies with a revenue range of $20 million to $200 million that generate earnings before interest and taxes greater than $5 million. Blue Point focuses on making control investments in situations that arise from: Management-led buyouts of private companies or divisions of larger companies; Recapitalizations of closely held or family-owned companies that provide liquidity to the sellers while allowing for continuing ownership; and Companies that need significant capital to fund internal growth or grow through completing add-on acquisitions. Blue Point has made investments throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe in the manufacturing, business services, and value-added distribution domains. Blue Point Capital Partners IV, L.P. closed January 2018 at its hard cap of $700 million.
