Advent Closes $1.5B Central, Eastern Europe Buyout Fund

Apr 17 2008 | 9:50am ET

Global buyout firm Advent International has closed ACEE IV, its fourth fund for investment across Central and Eastern Europe, at €1 billion (US$1.5 billion). ACEE IV will invest in companies requiring €30 million to €100 million of equity for growth.
 
“Central and Eastern Europe is now on the map for investors who are attracted by its combination of high growth and stability,” said Joanna James, managing partner. “This has served to raise the profile of the region, which is to the benefit of us all.  Advent has invested three funds across Central Europe since 1994; there are many more businesses there that offer real potential for growth and cross border expansion.”  
 
Chris Mruck, managing partner, added that some markets within the region are now “relatively mature, with buyouts the norm” while others are still developing and “offer great opportunities for pure growth.”
