|HighBar Partners, 6/2013||$130M|
HighBar Partners is a private investment firm focused on strategic growth capital investments in enterprise and infrastructure software companies. We are a creative and engaged investor with resources and relationships to assist management teams with financial, strategic and operational execution. Our unique model makes us an ideal partner when evaluating and structuring investments in companies undergoing significant change or transition. We specialize in complex transactions and invest in strategic growth equity rounds, turnarounds, divestitures & spinouts, management buyouts and other special situations.
HighBar was originally formed as a personal investment vehicle for three executives who were part of the founding teams at Sun Microsystems (Bill Joy, Andreas Bechtolsheim) and Brocade Communications Systems (Roy Thiele-Sardina). We have since grown into an institutional firm with approximately $200 million under management and investment and operating executives who work closely with the firm’s portfolio companies during the evaluation, planning and execution phases of development.
HighBar’s principals have founded, operated or invested in over 100 companies in the technology sector. We have a successful history doing this as investor operators, and our commitment is to partner with management teams and co-investors to add significant value beyond the financing.
