Pamplona raises €3bn for fourth private equity fund


eurooEuropean private equity firm Pamplona Capital Management has reportedly held a final close for its fourth fund.

Pamplona Capital Partners IV has secured €3bn, making it 50 per cent larger than the firm’s previous fund, said Dow Jones.

Pamplona’s first and second funds raised €322m and €1.3bn in 2005 and 2007, respectively.

The firm’s private equity team is based in London and new York, investing primarily in Europe and North America.

Its current portfolio includes pharmaceutical group Avlogen, healthcare services provider Magnacare, Singapore-based rig operator Global Tender Barges and tissue products maker Wepa.

Last month Pamplona bought locomotive and rolling stock leasing company Beacon Rail Leasing from Mitsubishi UFJ Financial subsidiary BTMU Capital for $450m.

The London-headquartered company’s current portfolio includes 77 locomotives, 632 freight wagons and 20 passenger train units on lease across Western Europe.
