Tiger Peak Capital Changes Name to Tygon Peak Capital
NEW YORK, NY, December 11, 2018 — Tiger Peak Capital (“Tiger Peak”), a New York-based private equity firm that invests in the North American lower middle-market, today announced that the firm is changing its name to Tygon Peak Capital (“Tygon Peak”).
While the company reviewed its name prior to selecting Tiger Peak Capital, in its subsequent efforts to trademark the name, it has become apparent that the name too closely resembles a number of other financial entities to be awarded a trademark. The company has decided that the wisest course of action is to adopt a more unique identity.
“We don’t want to cause distraction or possible confusion with other firms so we are opting to create a distinctive name that we can legally safeguard,” said founder and Managing Partner Haran Narulla. “The name Tygon Peak - a name that evokes both tiger and lion – is similar enough to Tiger Peak that it allows us to retain our connection to our investors and the wider community. We believe it captures the strength, charisma and stateliness associated with both animals, attributes valued by our firm.”
The firm remains at its current location:
200 Vesey Street, 24th Floor
New York, NY 10281
In September of this year, the firm announced its second investment when it acquired a majority stake in Voice Comm, a national leader in supply chain management services for the mobile device accessories industry. Tygon Peak’s first investment, which closed in October 2017, was in a specialty home healthcare business providing care to patients with chronic ailments.
