Krokus Private Equity has closed its fourth private equity fund, Nova Polonia Natexis II, with €100 million (US $134.7 million) in commitments. The fund had an original target of €75 million.
The new offering will invest €3 million to €10 million of equity in Polish companies with enterprise values of between €3 million and €30 million operating in sectors ranging from manufacturing to retail and services. To date, the fund has committed almost €13 million to two investments.
”We are delighted to announce the final close of Nova Polonia Natexis II, our fourth private equity fund but the first following our own buyout last year,” Witold Radwański, chief executive of Krokus, said. “In particular, we are happy that such a large number of investors were interested in our fund that we had to close at the hard cap and, even then, could not accommodate all the interest shown.”
Krokus was founded last year by partners Radwański, Marzena Tomecka, Robert BoCyk and Piotr Oskroba, together with Natexis Private Equity, following the partners' buyout from their former parent Polonia Financial Services.
