news_norway_lrgOslo-headquartered private equity firm FSN Capital is reportedly set to close its latest fund on its hard cap.

FSN, which targets mid-cap businesses in the Nordic region, will raise up to €600m for the vehicle, said Dow Jones, citing three people familiar with the situation.

In a recent regulatory filing, the firm revealed that it had raised $25m for FSN Capital IV from one investor.

The fund follows the firm’s third vehicle, which was closed on €375m in 2008, three years after it raised €151m for FSN Capital II.

FSN, which currently has €525m under management, acquires controlling stakes in companies with enterprise values of between €50m and €200m.

Earlier this year FSN bought a 60 per cent stake in retail group Validus and acquired Troax Group from lower mid-market firm Accent Equity Partners.

The firm’s other portfolio companies include insulation products maker Skamol and housebuilder HusCompagniet, which are both based in Denmark.
