The following six fundraising updates have been culled from SEC filings:
Oaktree Capital has raised $425.8 million to invest in mortgage-backed securities through the government’s PPIP plan. The fund, called Oaktree PPIP Private Fund, L.P., has 39 investors, which includes Arctic Slope PPIP Private Fund GP, L.P., a contractor which represents the Alaska Native Arctic Slope Inupiat. The $425.8 million likely includes capital raised for a parallel offshore fund called Oaktree PPIP Private Fund (Cayman), L.P., which accumulated $181 million in commitments, according to a separate SEC filing.
This one has been reported already, but in case you missed it: Littlejohn & Co. has held a second close on its fourth fund with $616.5 million in commitments. The firm is using Park Hill as a placement agent. The firm held a first close in September with around $400 million. The fund has a curious target figure of $1,323,529,412, which some reports have said is a hard cap while the actual target is $1.25 billion. If the target is reached, the fund would be a significant jump for Littlejohn & Co., which is coming off of an $850 million third fund. That vehicle initially had only $650 million in commitments, but raised an additional $200 million in 2006. According to information from Oregon Public Employee’s Retirement Fund, Littlejohn Fund II has returned 1.48x its money.
