TPG, Inc. priced its initial public offering at the midpoint of its range for an exciting trading debut on Thursday morning with some 30 years’ worth of experience under their belt – Texas Pacific Group (TPG) was originally founded back in 1982!
The long-awaited deal by the alternative investment firm with assets under management of $109 billion, 912 employees, and more than 280 active portfolio companies priced at just 29 cents a share.
TPG is set to go public with a market cap of more than $9 billion, based on the 69 million Class A shares expected to be outstanding and 229.7 million class B shareholdings that will accompany them when they join the trade net next week!
In the wake of a strong year for other publicly traded private equity firms, TPG raised about $1 billion in their IPO. This is an impressive number and comes after many companies have seen great success this past few months including Blackstone BX which manages over 500B dollars worth of assets alone!
TPG is an active participant in the Bay Area dating back to its earliest years, but it traces that roots all way back to Texas with its current headquarters based out of Fort Worth.
The firm is the result of a merger between two successful businesses, founded in 1990 and 1992 respectively. One half was run by David Bonderman who joined up with James Coulter to create this company before they both had retired from their previous positions as entrepreneurs altogether! They’re not done yet though; there’s still one more major transaction coming soon that could make them among America’s wealthiest men-if it goes well.
TPG, the Texas-based investment company has had a long history of success behind it. From buying Continental Airlines out of bankruptcy to backing many high profile companies that have gone public such as Airbnb and Spotify; TPAG’s brand changed over time due in large part by supporting these innovative startups through investments rather than solely being an acquirer like before where they were known more simply just “Texas Pacific Group”.
The private equity firm TPG has been taking companies public through special purpose acquisition company deals. One recent example is their investment in Vacasa, which they took from an independent public entity to a publicly traded one with help from other investors who were willing participants in this process as well – going by the name of “TPC.”
“This is unfair,” said one long-time private equity executive. “They may have felt at a competitive disadvantage to public peers by not having any liquid currency with which they could pay executives or make acquisitions.”
The Renaissance IPO ETF has been one of this year’s biggest losers, down 8.4% in the last 12 months and 24%. The S&P 500 on the other hand continues its impressive rise with a gain of nearly 25%.
