Calamos to acquire small/smid cap growth manager


Calamos Investments has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Timpani Capital Management, a boutique investment firm based in Milwaukee.

The transaction is expected to close following applicable regulatory and customary closing conditions, including mutual fund shareholder approvals.
Co-founded in 2008 by Chief Investment Officer and Portfolio Manager Brandon M Nelson, Timpani focusses on small-and smid-cap growth investing, combining fundamental research with behavioural finance concepts.
“We are thrilled to have Brandon and his team join Calamos Investments,” says John P Calamos Sr (pictured), Founder and Global Co-Chief Investment Officer of Calamos Investments. “As our firm has long embraced the merits of active management and growth-focused stock selection, Timpani’s small- and smid-cap expertise is a welcome addition to our lineup.”
“Following a rigorous due diligence process, we are confident in the exceptional capabilities of Brandon and his team,” says John Koudounis, Chief Executive Officer of Calamos Investments. “With this acquisition we are gaining strong talent and innovative investment thinking that extends our growth equity platform, consistent with the firm’s long term growth strategy.”
“At Timpani, we have always sought to put our clients first,” says Brandon Nelson. “In joining forces with Calamos, I, along with my team, will be able to remain focussed on our investment mandates while we benefit from the resources and synergies of a larger company that has been serving investors for more than 40 years. Moreover, Calamos and Timpani hold similar investment philosophies, embracing active, high conviction growth investing while also sharing similar corporate cultures and values, assuring us of a smooth transition.”
