Alternatives Shop Forms New Private Equity Arm

Sep 4 2008 | 10:25am ET

Alternative investment and consulting firm LJH Global Investments has teamed up with leveraged buyout vet John Jonge Poerink to launch LJH Linley Capital, a new private equity firm that will invest in global mid-sized companies.

LJH Global is providing the new firm with interim equity financing that it will use to make immediate investments ranging from $50 million to $800 million in transaction value.

Prior to co- founding Linley Capital, Poerink was a partner in a New York-based middle market buyout firm where he worked on leveraged buyout deals.

“Over the years, we have developed a strong foundation of trust and respect for John's investment and management capabilities,” said James Hedges, founder of LJH. “Partnering with John to build Linley Capital represents an exciting initiative for LJH and our investors. Moreover, we believe that Linley's middle-market focus is both timely and under-served.”
