CEECAT Capital completes first close of CEECAT Fund II
CEECAT Capital has completed the first close of CEECAT Fund II (the “Fund”) and secured €120 million of commitments
The Fund will target growth equity investments in the rapidly expanding small and mid-cap segment in Emerging Europe and Turkey, focussing on majority buyout or minority with significant control.
CEECAT Fund II has secured commitments from institutional investors including EIF and EBRD, and regionally based pension funds, endowments and family offices. The Fund aims to target a final close of €200 million.
“We are pleased to launch our second fund for Emerging Europe and Turkey, and as well as the support of the key development institutions who have supported our past funds, we are particularly excited to welcome regional institutions as partners, something we believe is evidence of the growing maturity of the region. Emerging Europe has developed into a key trading partner, manufacturing base and service supplier to Western Europe. We see significant investment opportunity within the themes of increasing per-capita income, export competitiveness and regional consolidation” said Anthony Stalker, Partner and CIO of CEECAT Capital. “We will continue to seek to partner with top management teams to promote socially responsible growth and best in class corporate governance”.
