One of Bain Capital's early venture investments was in Staples, Inc in 1986. They provided $4.5 million to help executives Leo Kahn and Thomas G. Stemberg open the office supply supermarket in Brighton, Massachusetts. They followed a similar venture capital investment strategy through the remainder of the 1980's until the 1990's. Bain Capital's shift in investment strategy towards a focus on leveraged buyouts and growth capital investments in the early 1990's was exemplified by their acquisition of Ampad from Mead Corporation in 1992. The acquisition saw Ampad grow in sales from $106.7 million in 1992 to $583.9 million in 1996, the same year the company listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
