HOW WE WORK WITH COMPANIES

ABRY's portfolio investments are true partnerships, and we make available all of our firm’s substantial resources, wherever appropriate, to support company management teams. Our 20 year history of investing exclusively in the media, communications, business and information services sectors enables us to offer tactical insights and strategic alternatives to our management partners, make valuable contributions as board members and assist in the growth and success of our portfolio companies.

What does ABRY bring to the partnership? First, we bring significant investment capital through our three active funds that invest in all parts of a company's capital structure. Second, we bring an extended network of relationships with many stakeholders in the industries in which we invest allowing us to add meaningful value to our operating partners. For example, ABRY's reputation among banking and finance organizations enables us to obtain attractive financing terms for our portfolio companies. Third, we bring more than a century of collective experience in supporting the growth of companies in our industry sectors. This results in timely, well-reasoned and consistent interaction throughout the life of an investment. We are often asked to help execute follow-on acquisitions and divestitures, introduce key management talent, and facilitate collaborative relationships with new customers and strategic partners.

ABRY conducts every partnership in a spirit of teamwork, open and straight-forward communication, and honest collaboration to capture value for all stakeholders. Our long track record makes us a known quantity in the industries in which we focus. Our most valuable asset is our reputation. Accordingly, our philosophy is to consistently deliver all that we promise or more, never less. We are committed to being fair and reliable partners.
