    Wellspring Capital Management, founded in 1995, is a leading middle-market private equity firm that manages more than $3 billion of private equity capital. The firm seeks to invest in companies with strong business franchises where there is an opportunity for significant improvement in profitability and cash flow. Ideally, potential investments have strong brand identity or market position; the likelihood for improved productivity or cost reductions through restructuring, reorganizing or redeploying capital into core businesses; and are capable of generating a recurring revenue stream and relatively stable and predictable cash flow with the potential for long-term growth. Wellspring has the flexibility to complete transactions ranging from $50 million to as much as $2 billion in total value. Wellspring's first fund was launched in 1995 with $85 million and in 2011, the firm raised its fifth fund with $1.2 billion. Since the launch of its initial program in 1995, Wellspring's fund size has grown by over 14 times.
