McCarthy Capital Invests in Leading Lifestyle Real Estate
Firm to Fuel Innovative Model

June 3, 2015 (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) – United Country Real Estate – a division of United Real Estate Holdings and the leading lifestyle- and rural-focused real estate franchising company – announced today that it has partnered with McCarthy Capital Fund V (“McCarthy Capital”) to more aggressively drive its rapid expansion. McCarthy Capital currently manages nearly $1 billion of investment capital across its portfolio specializing in helping grow strong businesses in partnership with existing management.

“The McCarthy Capital team brings a great deal of proven expertise to the table and will help us accelerate the realization of our long-term strategy,” said Dan Duffy, chief executive officer of United Real Estate Holdings. “With the track record that McCarthy Capital presents and the quality and experience of their group, we couldn’t have hoped for a better partner as we move forward.”

The growth capital allows United Country Real Estate to operate with excess liquidity and a strong balance sheet to effectuate its business strategies. Existing management will remain in place without exception and will have increased ownership as part of the transaction.

“Investing in strong management teams and profitable business models with significant growth potential is core to our approach,” said Patrick Duffy, president of McCarthy Capital, who is not related to United’s Dan Duffy. “United Country Real Estate is positioned to capture substantial market share in the lifestyle and rural real estate brokerage space. We are thrilled to support Dan and his team as well as all of the affiliated United Country offices, brokers, agents, and auctioneers on this journey.”

“We have been executing a very deliberate, aggressive long-term business plan to best deliver our 90-year mission of exposing local lifestyle and rural properties more broadly,” Dan Duffy said. “The leadership team at McCarthy Capital saw an opportunity to accelerate this long-term plan and fit perfectly with the United culture. We will continue to enhance our programs to assist our agents, brokers, and auctioneers in offering differentiated and advantaged services for their clients. We are extremely excited about this new chapter in our 90-year history.”
