Golden Gate spinout Altamont eyes Q1 close for new $750m fund


dollar 20_sqGolden Gate Capital spinout Altamont Capital Partners is reportedly looking to wrap up a new $750m fund by the end of the first quarter.

The mid-market firm is well on the way to completing its second fundraise according to Buyouts magazine, which cited LP sources.

Altamont gathered $500m for its debut fund in February 2011, a year after it was founded by former Golden Gate trio Jesse Rogers, Randall Eason and Keoni Schwartz.

All three had also previously worked for Bain & Company.

Altamont said it was targeting investments per deal of between $10m and $75m in equity, primarily for control positions in mid-market companies.

The firm has more than $1bn of capital under management according to its website, suggesting it has just less than $250m to go to hit the target for its second fund.
