BB&T Capital Partners and its affiliates manage committed capital across three separate fund strategies, each of which is focused on the middle market. We make direct equity investments as the lead investor or as a co-investor with other private equity groups in control transactions of privately-held companies; we provide subordinated debt and, if applicable, equity in support of transactions led by financial sponsors and others; and we invest in other private equity funds. Since 1998, we have invested directly in over 50 privately-held, middle market companies in a variety of industries, providing patient capital to facilitate buyout, acquisition, growth and recapitalization transactions. Our investing strategy focuses on a partnership approach with management with a common goal, through alignment of interests, in long-term value creation.
