KKR Investing In… KKR

Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. said that it may occasionally invest in common units of KKR Private Equity Investors, an Amsterdam-listed co-investment fund formed in April 2006. 


KKR Private Equity Investors, L.P. (Euronext Amsterdam:KPE) announced today that one or more investment funds that are managed by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. may invest from time to time in KPE's common units.

The funds investing in KPE's common units include newly formed funds that will be raising capital over time. As part of their strategy, these funds may invest in KPE in accordance with certain investment parameters and also may invest additional capital in other KKR funds and KKR investments as part of their investment objectives. Initially, these funds may invest up to approximately $100 million in KPE's common units, which amount may change over time.

Purchases and sales of KPE's common units are expected to be made through open market transactions over Euronext Amsterdam or in privately negotiated transactions, based on market conditions, the investment strategies of such funds, capital available to such funds and other factors considered relevant.

The funds investing in KPE's common units do not include KKR's traditional private equity funds. These investments are not being made by KPE or any entities in which it invests, and they will not reduce the number of common units that KPE has outstanding.
