Transformation.  Acceleration.  Leadership.

Audax Private Equity is solely focused on building leading middle market companies. Since inception, we have invested $4.5 billion in 113 platform investments and 648 add-on acquisitions.  Working with our management partners, we have repeatedly transformed market leaders into substantially larger, better-positioned, more valuable enterprises.

Partnership. Commitment.  Experience.

We believe in building close partnerships, and establishing tight alignments of interest, with our management teams. We are invested together in the pursuit of a common goal.  We have a private equity team of more than 100 investment, transaction, and operations professionals to deliver the expertise and the experience necessary to build companies of substantial value.  Our heritage and relationships are centered in the middle market, where we believe there is a broad spectrum of opportunities ideally suited to our “Buy & Build” investment strategy.  We understand the challenges and opportunities that middle market companies face, and we are staffed and organized to support management teams as we build value together.

The ColorMatrix founders wanted to take the company global and found a great partner in the Audax Private Equity team. They worked hand-in-hand with us, dramatically increasing our margins and creating value. Their experience at a global level really helped us build cohesive operations and find new market opportunities.”
