    Founded in 1990, TGV Partners has sponsored transactions ranging from LBOs and leveraged recapitalizations to traditional growth capital investments. The firm's track record encompasses over $150 million of private equity investments in transactions valued at over $400 million. Today, TGV pursues investments in traditional branded manufacturing & service businesses. The firm looks for established companies, typically with sales between $3 million and $100 million and strong operating performance, which are proven leaders in their industry segments, yet below the middle-market radar screen. TGV prefers transaction values ranging from $10 to $50 million, with the firm's private equity investment at $3 to $10 million. TGV targets companies with annual revenues of $20 to $50 million, and sustainable operating profit or EBITDA of at least $2 million.
