Thoma Bravo

Thoma Bravo and its predecessor firms have been providing equity and strategic and operating support to promising businesses and their management teams for more than 30 years. Our investment strategy is based on the concept of “industry consolidation” or “buy and build” investing which creates value through operational improvements, internal expansion, and the strategic use of acquisitions to accelerate earnings growth. This approach was first developed and proven by one of Thoma Bravo’s predecessor firms and has been applied and refined by the Thoma Bravo partners over many years, across many different industries, and through various business cycles and investment climates.
