River Capital, founded in 1983, is an Atlanta-based private investment firm which provides capital for management buyouts, recapitalizations and the growth capital needs of well-established middle market companies. Most often, we invest in transactions with purchase prices of $10 million to $50 million. River Capital is one of the oldest and most experienced firms of its type in the Southeast and has acquired or invested in companies in a broad range of industries with combined revenues of $600 million.
River Capital was initially formed as the private investment vehicle for its principals, who had successfully owned and operated businesses similar to those in which River Capital now invests. In 1985, the first River Capital partnership was created to enable other individual investors to participate in the continuing investment activity of the firm.
Our network of individual and institutional investors was broadened further through the formation of additional partnerships in 1988, 1990, 1997 and 2006.
