Trilantic North America Congratulates Vital Farms on IPO
Trilantic North America, a leading private equity firm, congratulates Vital Farms (the “Company”) on its recent IPO (NASDAQ: VITL). The Company, the largest national provider of pasture-raised and ethically produced eggs, received a minority growth investment from Sunrise Strategic Partners (“Sunrise”), an accelerator of emerging brands in the healthy, active and sustainable living space co-founded by Steve Hughes and Trilantic North America, in 2017. Following strong growth over the duration of its partnership with Sunrise, Vital Farms went public through an IPO in early August, offering 10.7 million shares (including a full exercise of the underwriters’ allotment) to raise $235.4 million.
“We are proud to congratulate the entire Vital Farms team on the success of their public market debut,” said Jamie Manges, Partner at Trilantic North America. “This milestone validates Vital Farms’ early vision that ethically produced food businesses are resonating with a growing set of both consumers and investors, and we look forward to seeing what it accomplishes in its next chapter as a public company.”
Vital Farms represents Trilantic North America’s seventh investment through Sunrise Strategic Partners, which has provided capital to 11 emerging brands since 2016.
