Calera Cap Brings Operating Partners On Board

Jan 31 2008 | 1:00am ET

Private equity firm Calera Capital has hired Paul Walsh and Clyde Thomas, both formerly of eFunds Corp., as operating partners. The pair will focus on making investments in the business and financial services sectors with a particular focus on transaction processing, payments and other technology outsourcing and information-based services.

Calera intends to commit $50 million to $200 million per investment in a range of transaction types, including recapitalizations, growth equity investments, public-to-private transactions and leveraged buyouts. The firm will also be focused on working with financial institutions, regional banks and business services consolidators in the sale or spin-off of their non-core assets and divisions.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Paul and Clyde given their strong track record of building middle-market businesses and their substantial experience in the financial and business services sectors,” said Jim Farrell, managing partner at Calera.

Calera Capital was founded in 1991 and has managed more than $2.5 billion of equity capital in investments with total transaction values of approximately $7 billion.
