Trive Capital Management LLC (“Trive”), the Dallas, Texas-based investment firm, is pleased to announce the final closing of Trive Capital Fund II LP and Trive Capital Fund II (Offshore) LP (together, “Fund II”) with $500 million of capital commitments. Fund II reached its hard-cap in three months and was substantially oversubscribed from its initial $400 million target.
“We have a very supportive group of global institutional investors that enabled us to have a quick and efficient fund closing. We believe the significantly over-subscribed fund drew interest from investors attracted to our deep value investing approach, quality of the Trive team and Fund I success to date deploying an operationally-focused investment strategy,” commented Conner Searcy, Managing Partner of Trive. “The close of Fund II caps a busy year for Trive during which we completed three platform investments, four dividend recapitalizations, a successful portfolio company exit and significantly expanded our team.”
Fund II’s investment focus will be in lower middle market companies which Trive believes possess transformational upside and would benefit from an operationally-focused partner. Trive also expects to continue to execute on its disciplined approach and seek out special situation investment opportunities across various industry sectors.
“Trive’s collaborative, hands-on operational model brings a skill set we believe is absent in many lower middle market businesses, increasing the velocity of shareholder value creation,” commented Chris Zugaro, Partner at Trive.
