PE HUB Wire Highlights, 4.25.19

Another co-founder exits Antares; Altas, former Onex exec’s shop, raises more than $2 bln; Investing in the continuum care can be win-in

Some big news this morning, Hubsters. There’s another senior exit at Antares Capital.

Dan Glickman is leaving Antares, the biggest middle market lender, at the end of the week, according to our sister publication Private Debt Investor. Glickman is a senior managing director. Two other co-founders have left in recent months. Eric Hansen, also a senior managing director, left Antares in November, while co-chief executive John Martin departed in early March, Private Debt said.

Martin’s departure left David Brackett as sole CEO of Antares.

I’ve been told that Martin’s departure had to do with questions over the power Canada Pension Plan Investment Board wields in deals. CPPIB acquired Antares from GE Capital in 2015. Antares and CPPIB could not immediately be reached for comment.
