PRESS RELEASE

NEW YORK / LONDON / HONG KONG – Atlantic-Pacific Capital, the largest privately-owned global placement agent and advisory firm, announced the oversubscribed final closing of Clearview Capital Fund III, L.P. (the “Fund”) with $325 million of capital commitments.  The Fund, managed by Clearview Capital (“Clearview” or the “Firm”), received tremendous support from a broad group of institutional investors including endowments, foundations, pension programs, consultants and high-net-worth family offices.
 
Formed in 1999 by Jim Andersen and Cal Neider, Clearview has pursued the same investment strategy since inception while establishing itself as a specialist in acquiring and developing companies with less than $10 million of EBITDA.  With offices in Old Greenwich (CT), Chicago and Los Angeles, the Firm utilizes a national sourcing approach to identify and acquire companies with excellent growth potential due to inefficiencies that lower middle-market companies often display. 
 
“We are extremely pleased with the strong support we received from existing and new investors alike.  Atlantic-Pacific Capital did an excellent job managing the marketing process in an efficient, organized and expedited manner to help us achieve a final close in approximately five months,” said Jim Andersen, Managing Partner & Founder at Clearview Capital.
 
“We are pleased that our LP clients recognized Clearview’s differentiated attributes and wish the Firm continued success in the lower middle-market segment,” commented Victor Manuel, Partner at Atlantic-Pacific Capital.
