INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY

This website, including information regarding GTCR’s current and historical portfolio companies, is for informational purposes only, and is intended only for management executives and individuals who may seek employment with GTCR. This website is not to be used or relied upon for any investment purpose whatsoever. For avoidance of doubt, this website is not for existing or potential investors in any private fund managed by GTCR (a “Fund”). Performance and other information regarding such Funds is not displayed on this website.

PORTFOLIO COMPANIES

This website includes information regarding GTCR’s current and historical portfolio companies and certain processes and strategies used in the past by GTCR and/or such portfolio companies. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results and there can be no assurance that any present or future portfolio company will achieve comparable results or be able to implement a desired strategy or objective. Further, there can be no assurance that any investor in a portfolio company would not lose any or all of their invested capital. Portfolio companies described in the Leadership Stories on this website are for potential management executives only and do not represent all portfolio company investments made by GTCR.

References to purchase prices (whether in connection with a purchase or sale of an individual portfolio company or aggregate purchase price information with respect to a group of portfolio companies) may not reflect the actual performance of such individual portfolio company or group of portfolio companies. Performance information with respect to individual portfolio company investments is not displayed on this website and no inference should be made with respect to the performance of any individual portfolio company or group of portfolio companies. Please click here for a complete list of past portfolio company investments made by GTCR since its inception. Portfolio company investments by GTCR were made across multiple Funds during different economic cycles.
