Uni-World Capital Announces First Closing of First Fund
July 17, 2009
Uni-World Capital, L.P. ("Uni-World", or "UWC"), a private equity firm focused on the lower-middle market, announced today the first closing of its debut fund. Uni-World plans to make control investments in consumer products, manufacturing, service, and distribution companies with at least $4 million of EBITDA. The firm's investment focus includes (but does not mandate) companies that are significantly owned and/or operated by minorities or women, thereby capitalizing on the growing demographic trends within the US. By targeting the underserved lower middle-market and providing access to deal flow in markets that have very attractive demographic profiles, UWC believes that it will generate above-average returns for its investors.
Investors in the fund include corporate and public pension plans and other fiduciaries.
The firm's partners have a total of 80 years of investing experience in middle-market companies, with backgrounds in private equity and merchant banking as well as operations, corporate finance and mergers and acquisitions. They include: Christopher Fuller, Jay Garcia, Erik Miller, Scott Porter and John O. Utendahl. The firm is headquartered in New York.
Uni-World Capital is seeking investments in established, historically profitable middle-market companies with revenues between $20-250 million and operating cash flow between $4-10 million in the following industries: Non-food Consumer Products, Food, Value-Added Manufacturing, Financial Services, and Mission Critical Business Services.
