Saskatoon, Saskatchewan-based private equity firm Westcap Management has closed Westcap MBO III Investment at C$285 million, ahead of a C$150 million target. The fund was aimed at institutional and high-net-worth investors, pensions and trusts and family offices with roots in local communities. It will continue to focus on providing succession and growth capital to Western-based companies.
SASKATOON, SK, Jan. 13, 2022 /CNW/ – Westcap Mgt. Ltd. (“Westcap”), is pleased to announce the final close of Westcap MBO III Investment LP (“Fund III” or the “Limited Partnership”) of $285 million. Upon its launch in spring 2021, Fund III targeted a minimum raise of $150 million which represented an increase from previous Funds in the series. The large demand in subscriptions resulted in the General Partner seeking Limited Partner approval for a further increase in capitalization to a maximum of $285 million which was successfully achieved. Fund III represents the largest amount raised by a Saskatchewan-based private equity fund manager.
This final closing represents a third fund in a series of private equity offerings targeted to institutional and high-net-worth investors, pensions and trusts, and family offices with deep roots in local communities which supports Westcap’s alignment in identifying strategic transactions, local knowledge, and strong expertise. The Limited Partnership will continue to focus on providing succession and growth capital to long-standing, Western-based companies involved in transition, consolidation or merger and acquisition activity.
Mr. Grant J. Kook, President and CEO of Westcap, comments, “We want to thank our Limited Partners for supporting the approval of a much larger fund due to the overwhelming interest in Fund III. Our unique model of how we approach succession transactions preserving the culture of great companies has resulted in a proven record of performance for our Limited Partners and continued institutional attention.”
