TAMPA, FLA. (PRWEB) AUGUST 31, 2020
Skyway Group Private Equity Funds, a leading private equity firm focused on mid-market investments in healthcare, human capital, information technology, and real estate, is announcing a name change effective today to SCP & CO. The name change reflects the company’s new strategic direction to make larger investments on a national scale and draw a greater distinction between its past history and future plans.
Originally founded in 2002 as Skyway Capital Partners, the company has a history of building long-term sustainable value through both organic growth and strategic mergers and acquisitions. The company sold its investment banking operations, Skyway Advisors, in 2016 and continued its private equity operations under the brand, Skyway Group Private Equity Funds.
Bryan Crino, President of SCP & CO, commented: “Scott and I originally founded Skyway Capital Partners as a leading merchant bank focused on providing investment banking advisory services, and that practice grew into a vehicle for making highly selective control principal investments. As we leave the world of advisory services behind, we are letting go of the name Skyway in order to signal to the market that the sole focus going forward for SCP & CO will be strategic principal acquisitions with a razor sharp focus on the healthcare, technology, and human capital industries where we have had great success.”
Over the last 18 years, the team has garnered extensive investing, operating, and advising experience in healthcare, information technology, human capital, and commercial real estate. With more than 100 combined years of experience and having completed more than 80 transactions totaling over $1.8 billion in aggregate value, SCP & CO has a unique perch that is critical to value creation.
“Our team has extensive experience with successfully originating, structuring, and exiting lower middle market investments over a long period of time and across a wide variety of economic and capital markets conditions. We are excited to unveil our new name, SCP & CO, a private equity company that will build on its track record of proven results over our 18-year history. As SCP & CO increases its focus on the intersection between healthcare and technology, we look forward to announcing even more exciting transactions soon,” said Scott Feuer, Chief Executive Officer.
