When The Heck Did This Happen?


Recommended Posts

Sloppy reporting. 




Berkshire Partners was founded by Bradley M. Bloom, J. Christopher Clifford, Carl Ferenbach, Richard K. Lubin and Russell L. Epker in 1984. The firm traces its roots back to Boston's Thomas H. Lee Partners, a large-cap private equity firm founded a decade earlier. Since its founding in 1984, Berkshire has raised eight private equity funds with total investor commitments of $11.0 billion since inception.




No, not that Berkshire -- the other one. Berkshire Partners is a private equity firm that targets established North American and European companies worth $200 million to $2 billion. It targets varied industries, including industrial manufacturing, consumer products, transportation, communications, business services, energy, and retailing. An active investor, the company usually puts up between $50 million to $500 million per transaction in leveraged buyouts, recapitalizations, privatizations, growth capital investments, and special situations. Its Stockbridge affiliate invests in marketable securities to compliment Berkshire Partners' core private equity activities.
