Dutch Buyout Shop Egeria Closes Fund IV

Dec 12 2012 | 11:59am ET

Egeria, an Amsterdam, Netherlands-based buyout shop, has achieved a first (and final) close for its fourth fund, Egeria Private Equity Fund IV, at €600 million.

Fundraising for Egeria IV began only last September and the fund was oversubscribed at its €600 million hard cap. The fund will continue to target buy-out opportunities in the Dutch mid-market.

Said Caroline Huyskes, Egeria partner, in a statement: “We’re very fortunate to have received such a universal show of confidence from both existing and new investors, which has allowed us to reach our fundraising goals so quickly. We’re very motivated at this opportunity to build on our current successes and to continue to back and grow market-leading Dutch businesses. Despite a continuing difficult global economic environment, we continue to see attractive opportunities in the Dutch mid-market.”

Egeria, founded in 1997, closed Egeria III in 2008 with €500 million from Dutch and international institutions and family offices, including investors from North America and Europe.

Acanthus Advisers acted as financial adviser and placement agent to Egeria.
