PRESS RELEASE

Sverica Capital Management Closes $450 Million Private Equity Fund at Hard Cap
Boston, MA and San Francisco, CA – October 8, 2019 – Sverica Capital Management
(“Sverica”), a leading growth-oriented lower middle market private equity firm, announced
today the first and final close of its fifth private equity fund, Sverica Capital Partners V
(“Fund V”). After three months in the market, Fund V exceeded its target, was
oversubscribed and closed at its hard cap of $450 million of total limited partner
commitments. Sverica will use Fund V to continue its strategy of investing in companies
that are, or have the potential to be, category leaders within their respective industries.
Sverica will also remain focused on businesses within the technology, business services,
healthcare and high-value industrial sectors.
Dave Finley, Managing Partner at Sverica, said, “We appreciate the strong interest that
was shown by the LP community in our investment strategy, enabling us to close at the
hard cap within a three-month effort. This is an important step forward for Sverica that will
allow us to further invest in the firm’s capabilities in our pursuit of industry-leading results.”
Sverica invests in companies at the lower end of the middle market in its sectors of focus.
Fund V will target businesses with enterprise values of up to $150 million with strong
growth characteristics and differentiated solutions or products. Sverica looks for
opportunities to partner with talented business leaders and assist them on their growth
journeys, with the hope of achieving goals together that they would be challenged to meet
without Sverica’s support. Sverica’s investment returns are driven by identifying areas to
reinvest back into businesses, augmenting a company’s talent, and building systems,
processes and infrastructure to scale an organization during its investment period. Over
many years, Sverica has built its own set of best practices and standard operating
procedures to support a repeatable and consistent investment process that will endure
over the long-term.
Jordan Richards, Managing Partner said, “We are extremely flattered by the strong
support we received from our existing investors and the positive reception from new
investors. We are excited about the opportunity to continue to partner with talented
executives throughout Fund V as we endeavor to help them grow category leading
companies and push to new pinnacles within their respective industries.”
Frank Young, Managing Partner commented, “The success of this fundraise is a testament
to our outstanding team and the passionate, hard work of a long list of current and former
Sverica employees, partners and advisors. We are fortunate to have developed
relationships with so many talented, high character people over the years, and are forever
grateful for their contributions to Sverica and our portfolio companies.”
Sverica has raised over $1.1 billion across five funds and invested in 34 portfolio
companies since inception.
