Roark Capital Group Wiki

Roark Capital Group is an American private equity firm with over US$ 12.0 billion in equity capital raised since inception that is focused on leveraged buyout investments in middle-market companies, primarily in the franchise/multi-unit, restaurant and food, retail healthcare and business services sectors. The firm is named for Howard Roark, the protagonist in Ayn Rand's novel, The Fountainhead. The firm's name is not meant to connote any particular political philosophy but instead signifies the firm's admiration for the iconoclastic qualities of independence and self-assurance embodied by the central figure in The Fountainhead.
