Date:10/16/2010

NEW YORK, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Stroz Friedberg's unsurpassed expertise in managing digital risk and uncovering digital evidence has helped attract a $115 million investment from New Mountain Capital to fuel and accelerate the company's growth.

"This investment is with the perfect partner and happens at the perfect time," says Eric Friedberg, Co-President of Stroz Friedberg.  "Over the next three years, the firm plans to expand to key markets in the U.S., Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, as well as broaden its service offerings beyond digital forensics, electronic discovery, cyber-crime response, and investigations to include forensic accounting and intelligence services for businesses.  New Mountain is the ideal partner given its strong experience and skill in scaling successful mid-sized organizations into larger companies worthy of public investment."

Founder and Co-President Edward Stroz says the investment will help Stroz Friedberg meet clients' increasing digital needs.

"Our clients are demanding more of our expertise for malware analysis, forensic accounting, and e-discovery," says Mr. Stroz, "and New Mountain Capital shares our vision about the best way to scale and deliver our expertise in the marketplace." 

New Mountain Capital, a New York based investment firm, currently manages more than $9 billion in aggregate capital commitments.

"Data security and digital forensics represent a challenge that touches all businesses, and considering the heightened technological and regulatory risks of today's world, the need for these services will only intensify," says Alok Singh, Managing Director of New Mountain Capital.  "Stroz Friedberg is a company with a sterling reputation based on the superior quality of its work and its people.  We're excited to be able to help this firm build upon its existing successes."

New Mountain Capital will own approximately 50 percent of Stroz Friedberg, with the remaining ownership shared by Greenhill Capital Partners II LP, Stroz Friedberg's initial private equity investor, and Stroz Friedberg's employees.

"Stroz Friedberg has experienced tremendous growth since its inception in 2000, and has more than tripled its revenues since our investment in December 2006. This partnership will enable the firm to meet the increased demand for managing the risk inherent in key digital assets such as e-mail, source code, electronic records, and Web 2.0 presence," says Robert Niehaus, Chairman of GCP Capital Partners LLC, the investment firm that manages Greenhill Capital Partners II LP.

Stroz Friedberg's proactive growth strategy is meant to further support its clients' global needs.  New Mountain Capital's robust investment in the firm, along with the continued guidance and support of Greenhill Capital Partners, will help speed Stroz Friedberg's ability to establish offices both domestically and globally, where existing clients' demands are urgent and potential clients abound.  The additional resources will further the firm's ability to attract its signature consultative talent in the form of both high-profile industry specialists and brilliant young stars emerging from the top undergraduate and Masters programs.

Mr. Stroz and Mr. Friedberg will continue as Co-Presidents and will be joined on Stroz Friedberg's Board of Directors by Fred Salerno, Raj Gupta, Myron Trepper, and Alok Singh, who will serve as Lead Director. Robert Niehaus and Dhiren Shah will continue serving on the Board representing Greenhill Capital Partners.  Fred Salerno is former Vice Chairman and CFO of Verizon and current Director of Akamai Technologies, Inc., CBS Corp., Intercontinental Exchange, Inc., Banco Popular, Inc., Viacom, Inc., and National Fuel Gas Co.  Raj Gupta is former Chairman and CEO of Rohm and Haas and current Director of Tyco, The Vanguard Group, and Hewlett-Packard Company.  Myron Trepper formerly served as Co-Chairman of Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP and now serves as Senior Counsel to the law firm.

"For 10 years, Eric Friedberg and I have kept our firm focused on helping companies and law firms with exceptional expertise in digital evidence, investigations, and computer breach incident response," says Mr. Stroz, "and we see the need for these services, including Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and forensic accounting investigations, substantially increasing."
