    Hancock Park Associates is a Los Angeles based private equity investment firm founded in 1986. Since its inception, the firm has maintained a focus on investing in small to mid-size companies. The Partnership's investment activities and operations are led by four partners out of the Los Angeles office. In late 2006, HPA established a Houston, Texas office with two new investment professionals to expand the capacity and geographic footprint of the firm. HPA is currently investing out of Hancock Park Capital III, LP, a $256 million institutional fund, which was established in 2005 with the objective of providing attractive returns through focused investments in smaller companies. This fund followed Hancock Park Capital II, LP, the firm's first institutional fund of $156 million, raised during 2002. HPA seeks to acquire controlling interests in small to medium-sized companies with average revenues at the time of acquisition of between $25 and $200 million, and EBITDA ranging between $2 and $20 million. HPA focuses on controlling equity investments across a range of industries, although the firm naturally gravitates towards manufacturing and specialty retailing.
