Norway’s HitecVision Private Equity AS said it has received commitments of US$800 million for its new buyout fund, HitecVision V, exceeding the original US$600 million target.
The fund will make eight to 10 platform investments in the oil and gas industry in Europe and North America within the next five years, with equity investments ranging from $US30 million to US$150 million. Ole Ertvaag, CEO and founding partner of the Stavanger-based firm, said, “We are extremely pleased with the strong support we have received from our long-standing investor base and to welcome this high caliber group of new international investors to the fund.”
MVision Private Equity Advisers acted as global placing agent for the fund.
With the new fund in the fold, HitecVision now manages three p.e. funds with a total committed capital base of over US$1.2 billion.
