Gemini Investors

by Richard S. Ruback and Royce Yudkoff


Gemini Investors was a private equity firm focused on small and lower middle market businesses. Gemini's target investment size was between $4 million and $6 million and a typical portfolio company had revenue of between $8 million and $30 million. In early 2015, Gemini was completing the investment of Gemini's Fund V and it was deciding whether it should raise a fund sized similarly to their prior funds, or alternatively, raising a significantly larger fund.
