    Veronis Suhler Stevenson (VSS) invests with outstanding operators to build the next generation of leading middle-market companies in North America and Europe. VSS provides capital for buyouts, recapitalizations, growth financings and strategic acquisitions to middle market companies and management teams with a goal of building companies both organically and through a focused add-on acquisition program. The VSS funds invest private capital to support lower middle market companies in the information, education, media, communications and business services industries in North America and Europe. VSS provides a range of financing options to owners and managers, including control and non-control equity as well as senior and subordinated debt. VSS currently manages two categories of private investment funds: (i) control-oriented private equity funds (the 'Equity Funds'), and (ii) mezzanine/structured capital funds (the 'Structured Capital Funds'). Generally the Equity Funds invest as a majority equity investor in transactions where the enterprise value of the company is between $50 million and $750 million. The Structured Capital Funds generally invests minority equity and/or subordinated debt capital in companies with an enterprise value of between $50 million and $350 million. Since 1987, VSS has managed six private investment funds with capital commitments totaling over $3 billion, including four equity funds and two structured capital funds. To date, VSS funds have invested in 74 platform companies, which have together completed over 330 add-on acquisitions.
