Ripplewood Holdings

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ripplewood is an American private equity firm based in New York City [1] that focuses on leveraged buyouts, late stage venture, growth capital, management buyouts, leveraged recapitalizations and other illiquid investments.

Ripplewood was founded by its current CEO, Tim Collins. Managing partners include Lawrence Lavine, Harris Williams and Michael C. Duran. The company's main interests range from telecommunications to banking to entertainment. The firm manages more than $10 billion in capital.[2]

Founded in 1995, Ripplewood manages about $4.0 billion in four institutional private equity funds: Ripplewood Partners, L.P.; Ripplewood Partners II, L.P.; RHJ International, L.P. and New LTCB Partners C.V. The company invests in education publishing, telecom, automotive retail, specialty chemicals, consumer products & food manufacturing, and industrial products.

Ripplewood has invested in nearly a dozen industry groups and in companies with more than $20 billion of revenue. It has led several of the largest private equity transactions, including its takeover of the Long-Term Credit Bank, renamed Shinsei Bank, which helped restructure the Japanese economy.

  • Research Byte: Diversity on Corporate Boards


Hi, I'm Aaron Dhir, an Associate Professor at Osgoode Hall Law School. The modern business corporation touches all of our lives in significant ways. It employs us, it produces goods that we consume, and it offers services from which we benefit. The corporation has become the dominant form of economic organization in many industrial societies. But does the governance of the corporation reflect the diversity of the societies in which it operates? And should it? Many governments are starting to turn their attention to the issue of demographic representation on corporate boards and in senior management positions. In Canada, women hold approximately 14 percent of board seats at Financial Post 500 companies, despite constituting more than 50 percent of the population. The statistics are even lower for racialized groups. Governments have sought to diversify the upper echelons of their corporate sectors by pursuing one of two strategies. Countries such as Norway, France, Spain and Iceland have imposed corporate board diversity quotas. In Norway, for example, if the board of a publicly-traded company has more than nine directors, there must be at least 40 per cent representation of men and women. If not, the company risks dissolution. This strategy reflects a fairly traditional approach to legal regulation. It is premised on a "command-and-control" model under which the state seeks to directly regulate corporate behavior. This can be contrasted with the second approach, found in countries such as the U.S. The Securities and Exchange Commission recently adopted a rule that requires publicly-traded companies to disclose to the regulator and to investors whether the firm considers diversity in identifying nominees for directorships, and if so how. This strategy demonstrates a more reflexive, "new governance" approach to legal regulation. It focuses on norm generation and the enhancement of internal self-regulatory capacities. It is anticipated that increased exposure will cause corporate actors to voluntarily pursue corrective measures and increase diversity. Other jurisdictions, including Canada, are presently considering the best path forward. Diversification is one of the hottest topics in corporate governance and it is the focus of my research as the 2011 Scholar in Residence with the Law Commission of Ontario.
