Green Street (or “the Company”), a premier provider of commercial real estate intelligence and analytics, recently announced that TA Associates (“TA”), one of the leading global growth private equity firm, has signed a definitive agreement to make a significant growth investment in the Company. Green Street’s current majority owner, Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe (“WCAS”), one of the leading private equity firm focused exclusively on the technology and healthcare industries, will retain a minority position in the business.
Todd Crockett, a Managing Director at TA, said “For more than three decades, Green Street has followed a consistent growth trajectory, driven by the Company’s distinguished products, talented team and commitment to customer success. Building on this strong foundation, we believe there is a sizable opportunity for continued organic and inorganic growth. We are thrilled to partner with Green Street and WCAS on the next phase of the Company’s journey.”
Green Street Chief Executive Officer Jeffry Stuek, Jr. said “TA’s partnership will strengthen our position to rapidly grow the business. Our plans for continued product innovation and investment in our talent will further enhance our strategy of providing the most robust commercial real estate intelligence that drives informed decision-making to maximize returns. We are committed to delivering even more value for clients and the top-quality customer experience that’s evidenced by our industry-leading Net Promoter Score.”
Mr. Stuek, along with the senior leadership team, will continue leading the company. “As we embark on this new chapter, we also reflect on our incredibly rewarding partnership with WCAS. We achieved many major milestones together and are deeply appreciative for their support. WCAS’s continued investment in Green Street further emphasizes their confidence in our Company,” he said.
Christopher J. Hooper, WCAS General Partner, said “WCAS is incredibly proud of our investment in Green Street. In the three years since making our investment, Jeff and the leadership team have led a remarkable transformation of the company, including accelerating growth via investments in go-to-market capabilities, transitioning to a subscription revenue model, launching a modern SaaS platform and completing two strategic acquisitions. As impressive as the last few years have been for Green Street, we are just as excited about its future, and thrilled to continue our partnership with the leadership group and TA.”
Jason Mironov, a Managing Director at TA, added “With our team’s deep expertise in scaling real estate data, analytics, and software companies, we believe TA is an ideal partner for Green Street. We look forward to collaborating with Green Street’s leadership team to promote innovation, enhance product offerings and accelerate the Company’s growth and expansion into new markets.”
