THREE DECADES OF EXPERIENCE.
SEVEN LOWER MIDDLE MARKET FUNDS.
NINETY-FOUR TOTAL TRANSACTIONS.
In 1989, a lower middle market private equity firm was founded in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Over the past 30 years, River Associates has made 94 investments in companies operating in a variety of industries throughout the United States and Canada. River I, LP was a $5 million fund. River VII, LP, currently being invested, is a $285 million fund. While the fund size has grown, the values and focus that have fostered the firm’s tenure have not changed: honesty, transparency, responsiveness and a continued commitment to partnering with management teams to invest in and grow lower middle market businesses.
River Associates sincerely appreciates the support of and relationships with all of its constituents, particularly its investors, portfolio company management teams, deal sources, and lending partners.
