“We decided to work with TA because of its long, successful history of helping software companies grow their businesses in the vital U.S. market. In particular, TA worked closely with us to evaluate and evolve the company’s product strategy, to successfully complete three acquisitions, and to enhance the management team and board in the UK and in the U.S.”

Meeting Your Capital and Ownership Objectives


At TA Associates, your objectives determine the structure of our investment. Whether your goal is to buy or sell a company, diversify your net worth by selling some of your equity ownership or raise capital to continue growing your business, we will work with you to determine the most creative and beneficial structure that meets your objectives.


While TA is most often the lead investor, we are often a minority investor (i.e., without voting control). We provide strategic guidance and advice through board participation and leave the day-to-day operations of the company under your control.


TA provides equity and debt capital for various structures through a substantial capital base:


  • $18 billion raised since inception, including $6 billion in actively investing funds
  • Equity investments range from $50 million to $500 million
  • Subordinated debt investments generally range from $10 million to $50 million
