Munich-based private equity firm Perusa Partners has announced the first and final closing of its latest fund just three months after its initial launch, with commitments of €207m.
The oversubscribed Perusa Partners Fund 2 received commitments from pension funds and insurance companies from Australia, the Netherlands, Nordic countries and the US.
The vehicle will target majority ownership as sole or lead investor in companies with a turnover typically between €30m and €500m. The firm will principally invest in lower mid-market special situations in Germany and German-speaking countries.
Dr Christian Hollenberg, a partner at Perusa, said, “We are delighted by a quick and efficient fundraising process, which allows us to focus on our core investments and responsibilities. We would like to thank [placement agent] MVision for helping to manage the process in a timely, supportive and effective manner. We appreciate the continued strong support of our existing investors, and we look forward to working alongside select high quality new investors in this fund.”
