Catalyst Investors, a private equity fund with a focus on media, telecommunications and related Internet services, recently held final closings on two funds with $170 million in aggregate committed capital.
Catalyst Investors II will invest in between 10 and 15 companies over its lifespan, having already made four investments to date. The fund will invest in small- and medium-sized businesses within traditional and growth sectors of the media and communications and related Internet industries. The second new fund, Catalyst UK Partners, is a special purpose vehicle created to invest in a single targeted acquisition, which has been completed.
"The final closing of these Funds marks an important milestone for Catalyst,” Brian Rich, managing partner of Catalyst, said. “The media and communications and Internet services industries continue to offer some of the best investment prospects today in terms of organic industry growth, and the size of our target companies makes them ideal for consolidation and roll-up opportunities."
Catalyst Investors was founded in April 2000 by Rich, Chris Shipman and Ryan McNally.
