We have sponsored 163 acquisitions, totaling more than $4.5 billion in transaction value and $1.4 billion of invested capital.

Why Riata Capital Group?

Significant Experience and Success in Our Core Sectors

Our investment team possesses deep domain experience resulting from over 100 years of combined experience helping to build market-leading companies in the business services, consumer, and healthcare services sectors. We can be valuable resources in our core sectors, provide a wealth of contacts and relationships, and bring perspective related to industry structure, strategic risks and opportunities, and regulatory and competitive frameworks.

Extensive Network of Relationships

The Riata team is able to leverage its extensive professional network to help recruit key management personnel, bring in functional or project-based experts, facilitate discussions with relevant strategic participants, and build effective, experienced, and highly functioning boards of directors.

Success with Organic and Buy & Build Growth Strategies

The Riata team is highly experienced at implementing a variety of strategies aimed at accelerating the organic growth of businesses. We support these strategies with our capital, access to operational resources, and ability to collaborate with management teams. We also have experience working with companies to source, negotiate, on-board, and integrate add-on acquisitions that previously may have been too large, too risky, or too time-consuming for teams to undertake independently.

Trusted Investment Partners

With over 25 years of private equity experience spanning 163 acquisitions, we understand that we are in a people-first business and that trust, responsiveness, and straight-forward communication are critical to a successful partnership. From the initial meetings through the full investment cycle, the process and how we handle relationships matters. We have years of experience collaborating with entrepreneurs and business owners to creatively structure and complete transactions with solutions that meet sellers’ needs while achieving our investment objectives.
