Advisory: PE HUB looks into filing by firm with same name as Chicago-based Growth Catalyst

PE HUB is looking into an SEC filing made by a Mauritius-based firm with the same name as a middle market firm in Chicago, Growth Catalyst Partners LLC.

The Form D filing, filed with the SEC last week, says the Mauritius-based firm raised $57 million from seven investors on a $100 million target, as reported earlier in PE HUB. The filing includes a person named Ashraf Ramtoola as director. The Mauritius-based firm has no relation to the Chicago firm.

The SEC does not vet Form D filings, and firms can file them to the EDGAR database after obtaining access codes and a CIK (central index key) number from the regulator.

PE HUB will update the story as more information becomes available.
