Fortress, Providence Equity Invest $280M In Harbinger Permanent Capital Co.

May 16 2011 | 1:55pm ET

A pair of alternative investments firms has invested almost $300 million in Harbinger Capital Partners' permanent capital vehicle.

Harbinger Group raised $280 million from three investors, including Fortress Investment Group and Providence Equity Fortress. Fortress' CF Turul fund provided the bulk of the financing, $205 million, with Providence Equity chipping in $50 million and a reinsurance company another $25 million.

The money bought the investors 280,000 convertible shares, accounting for a 23.6% stake in Harbinger Group. The shares have a coupon of 8% and are convertible at $6.50 per share, the holding company's approximate stock price on Friday.

Harbinger Capital set up Harbinger Group in 2009 and last year raised $350 million in a bond sale. That money, like the money raised last week, was earmarked for general corporate purposes.
