Cyprium Partners prides itself on identifying exceptional management teams who are just as committed as we are to planning for growth. This alignment, combined with a non-control capital solution from Cyprium, allows management teams, entrepreneurs and family shareholders to substantially benefit by retaining operational and economic control of their companies. That’s why we are pleased to recognize two of Cyprium’s former portfolio companies – Clover Technologies and Convergint Technologies – for their inclusion in the 2013 Crain’s Chicago Fast Fifty.
Each year, the Fast Fifty recognizes the Chicago area’s fastest growing companies, and it is no surprise to see Clover and Convergint make this year’s list.
Cyprium’s investment structures provide the opportunity for management and family shareholders to position themselves to benefit from future expansion and, ultimately, to achieve significant incremental value for their business after this growth has been achieved.
We congratulate Clover and Convergint for their continued growth and innovation, and look forward to helping more management teams recognize value through the use of non-control equity and subordinated debt.
