Chicago, IL. — Prospect Partners (“Prospect”), a leading private equity firm investing in pre-middle market companies, announced that it sold its interest in Minuteman Security Technologies, Inc. (“Minuteman” or the “Company”) of Andover, MA, to Tenex Capital Management.

Minuteman is a premier integrator and service provider of commercial security surveillance, access control, fire systems, and related life-safety technological offerings. The Company provides industry-leading technology solutions to customers in education, healthcare, municipal transportation, law enforcement, and various other commercial end-markets.

“Minuteman’s founder and CEO, Joe Lynch, has been an innovative CEO and influential presence in the industry,” said Brett Holcomb, Partner at Prospect Partners. “It has been a pleasure to partner with Joe and the rest of his outstanding team to build a leading security and life safety integrator. We are excited to watch Minuteman’s success in the coming years.”

Founded in 1988, the Company began providing enterprise security technology solutions and has since expanded to fire and life-safety systems. The Company employs 160 team members across an 11-branch network and has become a premier security and life safety services provider in its core New England, Florida, and Central US markets. The Company supports thousands of long-standing customers as a one-stop shop across their comprehensive security, fire, and life-safety solutions and application needs.

“Prospect Partners was a fantastic partner,” said Minuteman’s Joe Lynch. “They helped us evolve into a leading security and life safety integrator, overseeing investments in our team and systems along the way. Prospect guided us during a high growth period as we tripled the size of the business under their ownership. They really understand how to partner with entrepreneurs to build leading middle-market platforms.”

TM Capital served as Minuteman’s exclusive financial advisor in this transaction, and DLA Piper LLP provided legal counsel to the Company.
