Blue Sea Capital beats target for debut fund


seaLower mid-market firm Blue Sea Capital has raised $327m for its inaugural fund, beating its initial $270m target.

The Florida-based firm makes equity investments of up to $60m in companies with an EBITDA of up to $30m.

It is focused on the aerospace and defence, healthcare and industrial sectors.

LPs that have backed its debut fund include Texas Teacher Retirement System, which agreed to commit $15m in January this year.

Last November AltAssets revealed that the fund had gathered $192.7m from 15 LPs.

Six of Blue Sea’s investment team were formerly at Brockway Moran & Partners, a mid-market firm which was expected to launch its fourth fund in 2012.
