Private debt fund Multiplier Capital has closed its follow-on growth loan fund at about $266 million. Multiplier invests in various growth industries that include enterprise software, digital media, cyber security, healthcare technology and services, and technology-enabled services.
Chevy Chase, MD, December 19, 2017 – Multiplier Capital, a fund family with established excellence in lending to growth companies, today announced the final closing of its follow-on growth loan fund, Multiplier Capital II, LP, with investable capital of approximately $266 million.
Multiplier Capital II will be spearheaded by the senior team members from the first fund: Ray Boone, Ezra Friedberg, Wilson King, Henry “Huck” O’Connor and Kevin Sheehan. The Multiplier platform now has more than $500 million under management.
“Our inaugural fund, Multiplier Capital, LP has been making substantial quarterly distributions since early 2014,” said Kevin Sheehan, managing general partner, “and it has been gratifying that the vast majority of our Multiplier I investors quickly committed to the new fund – many of them with larger contributions. We are very pleased to receive that support.”
Huck O’Connor, a general partner added, “We are excited that Multiplier II provides us with long-term and recyclable capital to make flexible growth loans, and we are actively seeking opportunities to help create value for strong growth companies – and their sponsors – nationwide.”
Like its predecessor fund, Multiplier Capital II was oversubscribed, and is licensed as a Small Business Investment Company by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
