Investment funds affiliated with private equity firm Lightyear Capital LLC agreed to acquire Engage PEO, a professional employer organization providing HR outsourcing solutions to small and midsize businesses across the US.

The company will continue to operate as Engage PEO. The current management team will remain part of the ownership structure and in place with no operational changes.
