What We Do
OpenGate Capital acquires businesses with strong brand identities that have either strayed away from achieving full potential or are no longer compatible with their parent company’s strategic objectives.
These businesses may be underperforming relative to their competitors due to overlooked potential, misaligned management, capital constraints, or poorly structured working capital dynamics.
We provide institutional capital, implement operational strategies, and deliver advanced technological capabilities through OGx to ultimately drive performance and value which results in outsized returns.
Since 2005, OpenGate Capital has completed 28* platform acquisitions across 5 continents in the Industrials, Technology, Consumer, and Business Services sectors. To learn more about our Focus Industries.
