Texas-based private equity firm Lone Star Funds has reportedly secured $5.7bn for its latest distressed debt vehicle.
Dow Jones reported the news, citing a person with knowledge of the matter, while regulatory filings showed that Lone Star Fund IX has secured just over $5.3bn via two vehicles.
The new fund is significantly larger than its previous general distressed asset-focused fund, Lone Star Fund VIII, which was closed on $5.1bn last May.
Lone Star’s general distressed vehicles are focused on distressed loans and securities and investments in financially oriented and real estate-rich operating companies.
Last October the firm closed its third real estate fund on $7bn, exceeding its $6bn target.
