About Pacific Sunwear of California, LLC

With more than $15 billion in committed capital, San Francisco-based private equity investment firm Golden Gate Capital specializes in leveraged buyouts, growth equity investments, public-to-private transactions, recapitalizations, corporate carve-outs, industry consolidation, and bankruptcy acquisitions. It invests in sectors including software, semiconductors and technical hardware, industrials, consumer, financial services, and IT and business services. Its diverse portfolio consists of interests in more than 40 companies, including Bob Evans Restaurant, Angel Island Capital, Active Minerals International, Clover Technologies Group, LiveVox, and Vector Solutions. Several of Golden Gate's managing directors are veterans of Boston-based investment firm Bain Capital.


Golden Gate Capital focuses on six industries: consumer; financial services; industrials; IT and business services; technical hardware, telecom, and semiconductors; and software.

For its consumer sector investments, the private equity firm focuses on add-on acquisitions, capital investments, and operational improvement. The company has acquired around 20 companies with total revenue of greater than $10 billion since 2008. Notable investments include Bob Evans Restaurant, California Pizza Kitchen, Red Lobster, and Mavis Discount Tire and Express Oil Change & Tire Engineers.

In Financial Services, Golden Gate targets undercapitalized or structurally unsustainable businesses in growth industries or companies with undervalued balance sheets—particularly in the insurance, asset management, and specialty finance subsectors.

The firm's industrials activities are diversified across energy, aerospace, chemicals, building products, distribution, industrial technology, healthcare manufacturing and packaging.

Golden Gate looks to leverage its existing IT and business services sector relationships for those ventures. It focuses on companies with recurring or contractual sources of income in fragmented, growing markets including information services, data analytics, marketing services, outsourcing, and payment technology.

Similarly, Golden Gate maintains an extensive relationship network in the technical hardware, telecom, and semiconductors industries including sensors, test and measurement, aerospace, defense, and electronics manufacturing.

The company is one of the world's top software investors, with historical holdings in more than 60 businesses with total revenue of more than $5 billion. It seeks take-privates, private acquisitions, corporate extractions, and bankruptcy deals.
