KNIGHTS BRIDGE CAPITAL PARTNERS - Description and Overview

INVESTOR TYPE Private Equity
Knight's Bridge Capital Partners is a merchant bank with a heavy private equity focus. They operate two funds.

KNIGHTS BRIDGE CAPITAL PARTNERS FUND I, LP

Established in 2008, this fund is focused on established businesses and exit strategy. Generally, investee companies are established businesses. The Funds primary focus is the deployment of capital within North America for equity or equity-like investment in, or acquisition of, companies that own recognized consumer brands, intellectual property, and trademarks, which provide value to their products or services.

The Funds typical investment is between $6 million and $10 million (although with the approval of its oversight committee the Fund may, and has on occasion, increased its equity participation beyond the $10 million threshold).

The Fund also invests in established businesses and industries that management believes to be undervalued or to have been overlooked by other investors due to size constraints.

The Fund generally seeks to structure its investments to enable itself to exert significant influence on the ongoing operations of its investee companies and to leverage the management and operational skills of Knights Bridges management team to create value for its limited partners. The Fund seeks superior management for its portfolio companies and offers incentives through equity participation, in order to align managements interests with those of the Fund.

The other fund operated by Knights Bridge Capital Partners is as follows:

KNIGHTS BRIDGE CAPITAL PARTNERS INTERNET FUND

The Internet Fund was established in 2007 in order to make angel and venture investments in early stage technology and new media companies, principally located in the United States. In 2008, the Internet Fund completed the investment of all of its committed capital and so is no longer making investments in internet companies. Howard Lindzon was involved in the Knight's Bridge Capital Partners Internet Fund. He is now making investments through Social Leverage, and its investments can be seen in the Social Leverage profile.
