Abstract: Let $ \mathcal{R}$ be the category of commutative rings with unity and unity-preserving homomorphisms, and let $ \Pi $ be a small algebraic theory, i.e., an algebraic theory with a rank in the sense of Linton. The category $ \mathcal{A}$ of $ \Pi $-coalgebras in $ \mathcal{R}$ is the category of coproduct-preserving functors $ {\Pi ^{\ast}} \to \mathcal{R}$. We prove that the standard forgetful functor $ U:\mathcal{A} \to \mathcal{R}$ has a right adjoint $ V$.
