"A Private Equity Investment
And Management Firm"




Kildare Enterprises, LLC is a private equity investment and management firm dedicated to the successful development of its portfolio companies. Our pool of pledged capital is designed to support the acquisition of companies with enterprise values in the range of $5 to 40 million. In special cases, we may acquire somewhat larger businesses in partnership with another private equity firm.

We do not solicit investment funds from institutional sources, but instead rely on the personal resources of our investor group who can afford to be patient and flexible during the implementation of our investment and management processes.

Kildare was founded and organized by T. J. Dermot Dunphy, the former Chairman, President and CEO of Sealed Air Corporation of Saddlebrook, New Jersey (SEE: NYSE).

During his tenure as CEO from 1971 until his retirement in 2000, Mr. Dunphy guided Sealed Air - the inventor of Bubble Wrap and many other packaging products and systems - from its humble beginnings of less than $5 million revenue to a $3 billion powerhouse in the specialty packaging industry. According to Investor's Business Daily the value of Sealed Air stock appreciated 32,000% during this period, far eclipsing the S&P 500 Index. This performance placed Mr. Dunphy #1 among CEO's of manufacturing companies in market value created during their CEO terms, according to consultant Stern Stewart & Company as reported in Chief Executive magazine.

Kildare's management team and investor group have exceptional business credentials, possibly without peer in the smaller end of the mid-cap investment market.
