EagleTree Capital Closes Fund V at $1.118 Billion
New York, February 12, 2020 – EagleTree Capital (“EagleTree”), a leading independent private equity and investment firm, today announced the closing of its latest private equity fund, EagleTree Partners V (“ET V”), with aggregate capital commitments of $1.118 billion, exceeding its initial target.
EagleTree’s two most recent funds, EagleTree Partners III and EagleTree Partners IV, raised $403 million and $790 million, respectively.
ET V received strong support from existing EagleTree investors and several new, leading investors in the U.S. and abroad. Proceeds from EagleTree’s recent structured financing investment substantially increased the Firm’s own commitment to ET V, making EagleTree and its employees the largest investor in ET V.
EagleTree Co-Managing Partners Anup Bagaria and George Majoros commented, “We are thrilled with the success of the fundraise, and are grateful for the strong support we have received from both new and existing investors. We look forward to investing ET V with the same collaborative approach that has defined the EagleTree team for decades.”
EagleTree focuses on investments in the media and business services, consumer, and water and specialty industrial sectors.
Lazard acted as placement agent for ET V and Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP provided legal counsel.
