Parthenon Capital Partners Announces Investment in Envysion

Parthenon Capital Partners (“Parthenon”), a growth oriented private equity firm with offices in San Francisco and Boston, announced today that it completed an investment in Envysion, a leading provider of managed video surveillance as a service (“MVaaS”) for QSR, retail, wireless, convenience store and cinema customers. Proceeds from the transaction will be used to provide growth capital for the Company and to provide liquidity to certain shareholders.

Envysion is led by Chief Executive Officer, Matt Steinfort, who, with his highly accomplished team, has developed a cloud-based MVaaS solution providing powerful video-based business intelligence solutions to numerous retail end-markets. Mr. Steinfort, who co-invested alongside Parthenon in the transaction, said, “Since we first met the Parthenon team over a year ago, we have been consistently impressed with their deep understanding of our industry. They have dedicated significant time researching the industry and have come into the investment with a compelling thesis developed over that period. We have worked closely with the Parthenon team over the past year to develop a shared vision to continue the growth and innovation that has made Envysion an industry leader. We are confident that the resources and experience that Parthenon brings to the investment make it the right partner to help Envysion reach its full potential.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Matt and the Envysion team,” said Andrew Dodson, Partner at Parthenon Capital Partners. “Having spent years in and around the security and video surveillance industries, we believe that video-driven business intelligence is revolutionizing how owners and operators manage retail and restaurant locations. With better access to broadband and affordable data storage, operators can utilize cloud-based solutions like Envysion’s to dramatically enhance their loss prevention efforts and improve operational efficiency by combining analytics with video. We believe Envysion is the clear industry leader providing these capabilities.”

Headquartered in Louisville, CO, Envysion was founded in 2006 with the goal to provide sophisticated managed video surveillance solutions to customers who needed an easy-to-use solution to enhance their business intelligence capabilities and provide insight into their retail operations. Today, the Company’s solution is deployed in thousands of retail locations across the United States and Canada and has been proven to drive meaningful profitability improvements and prevent millions of dollars in potential losses.

David Ament, a Managing Partner at Parthenon, added, “Since its founding, Envysion has partnered with some of the largest, most sophisticated operators within the retail, restaurant and cinema industries. By providing these customers with powerful, easy-to-use, cloud-based solutions, Envysion has substantially increased the profitability of these customers, reduced losses, increased operational efficiency, and driven the effectiveness of marketing campaigns. Parthenon is excited to partner with the Envysion team to build upon its track record of growth and lead the industry into its next phase of expansion.”
