Sole Source rapidly builds out warehouse tech platform, Roark Capital invests in Divisions Maintenance Group, Jim Momtazee could set ambitious target for debut fund

Sole Source-backed Supply Chain Services acquires Dasco and Patient Square Capital could target $2 billion or more for its debut fund.


An emerging manager deal! Sole Source Capital, launched by ex-Gores Group executive David Fredston, added-on Dasco Label to its platform Supply Chain Services, writes Karishma Vanjani on PE Hub.
The companies provide technology for warehouses, hospital labs, breweries, groceries and other small-to-medium-sized businesses to automate and manage data collection. The Dasco deal was proprietorially sourced, Karishma writes.

“We approached Dasco early to mid-July; they are 20 mins away from our existing facility,” said managing partner Fredston, referring to the platform company’s headquarters. The proximity of the add-on helped in conducting effective due diligence in this new physically distanced world, according to Fredston.

Sole Source closed its first fund on $160 million in 2018. It’s in the market now with Fund II targeting $400 million, and has raised more than $200 million for the sophomore effort.

The pool will be a test for a well-known executive raising a first-time fund, which is generally a challenging prospect and especially so in the pandemic-roiled markets. Read more here on Buyouts.
