Our Firm

Investment Thesis

Opus Capital Partners is a Dallas, Tx. based minority owned private equity firm. We specialize in aligning with experienced operators to acquire market leading businesses within their industries of expertise. We combine transaction acumen, with an entrepreneurial spirit and the focused operating expertise of our team.  This combination allows us to unlock unrealized value within our acquisitions and maximize the Internal Rate of Return for all stakeholders. 


We focus on acquiring businesses which supply mission-critical products and services to Fortune 500 corporations and government entities, as well as those which provide products and services beneficial to African American and Hispanic consumers.  


Our acquisition targets include: 

  • Corporate carve-outs and divestitures from Fortune 500 companies 
  • High-quality businesses positioned for the next level of scalability but “stuck” as a result of their current ownership structure. 
  • Majority or minority ownership positions in professional sports franchises.


We seek to leverage our capital, expertise, and relationships to convert these organizations into scalable businesses that happen to be certified Minority Business Enterprises (MBE’s). 

Target Industries

While Opus Capital Partners is industry-agnostic, we maintain a focus on acquiring companies that fit the industry expertise of our operating partners. We are currently seeking companies that operate within defense, government services, telecommunications, energy, business services, professional sports and entertainment, IT services, logistics and transportation, and infrastructure.


Our partners are seasoned professionals who have a track record of success within these industries and stand prepared to co-invest in partnership with our network of top-tier private equity funds to close transactions.  


Our success comes from our broad, diverse network of successful entrepreneurs and senior industry experts. Opus Capital Partners is led by Kevin Sample, who has over 25 years of Private Equity and investment banking experience. Sample has completed over $1 billion in private equity transactions and has extensive experience at leading organizations such as TIAA-CREF;  investment banking boutique Walton-Johnson ; the Pinnacle Minority Growth Fund sponsored by Wal-Mart Corporation. 

Opportunity, Impact, Equity.
That’s the Opus advantage and
the hallmark of our team.

Together, our leadership embodies our vision of transforming companies by focusing on bringing out the best in what we all have to offer. Strong MBE companies provide immense opportunities to our stakeholders but also to the communities in which we live, work, and serve. Opportunity, Impact, Equity. That is the Opus Advantage.
