In 2006, One Equity, together with The Blackstone Group and Technology Crossover Ventures acquired Travelport from Cendant in a $4.3 billion buyout. The company owns Worldspan and Galileo as well as approximately 48% of Orbitz Worldwide. The sale of Travelport followed the spin-offs of Cendant's real estate and hospitality businesses, Realogy Corporation and Wyndham Worldwide Corporation, respectively, in July 2006.[1][2] Later in the year, TPG and Silver Lake would acquire Travelport's chief competitor Sabre Holdings.

Among One Equity's other notable investments include Polaroid Corporation which was sold in 2005 at a significant gain,[3][4][5] as well as: Apollo Hospitals, Carlson Wagonlit Travel, Clipper Windpower, NCO Group,[6] Pfleiderer, Systagenix Wound Management, ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, Vertrue, X-Rite, and recently M*Modal formerly MedQuist and Italian system integrator Engineering Ingegneria Informatica.


One Equity Partners was founded in 2001 by Dick Cashin to serve as the private equity investment arm of Bank One. Cashin had previously served as president of Citicorp Venture Capital, the predecessor of Court Square Capital Partners and CVC Capital Partners, where he worked for Bank One's then CEO, Jamie Dimon.

In 2002, former Ford Motor Company CEO Jacques Nasser joined One Equity. He would serve as chairman of Polaroid Corporation. Nasser was involved in 2006, when One Equity was speculated as one of several potential private equity bidders for Jaguar Cars.[7]

In 2004, Bear Stearns' private equity platform, Bear Stearns Merchant Banking, One Equity was once again designated the exclusive private equity arm for the combined firm.[9]
