Tricor Pacific Capital raises $300m for latest fund


vancouver-canada_sqPrivate equity firm Tricor Pacific Capital has reportedly raised C$318m ($300m) for its latest buyout fund.

The news was reported by Dow Jones, which also said that the firm has made a return of three times from the sale of peanut butter, nuts and dry goods producer Golden Boy Foods to Post Holdings, citing a person familiar with the firm.

The Vancouver-headquartered firm is currently investing from its C$555m fourth fund. It has invested nearly C$1bn since its launch in 1996.

Tricor targets lower mid-market companies with an enterprise value of between $25m and $150m.

In September it was reported that another Canadian private equity firm, Ironbridge Equity Partners, planned to close its second fund on its C$125m target before the end of the year after picking up C$50m.
