    Capricorn Holdings, Inc., is the private investment vehicle for Herbert S.

Currently, the firm is investing its fourth fund, Capricorn IV, LLC, and seeking to invest as lead or co-lead investor in transactions valued at $50 to $500 million. Investments at cost have ranged from $3 million to $35 million. Capricorn has invested in portfolio companies whose annual revenue exceeded $3 billion. In addition to its control investments in middle-market companies, Capricorn Holdings also has taken investment positions in early-stage growth companies with significant potential to expand, either through use of new technology or growth in new markets.
