DFW Capital Partners announced today that it has held a final closing on DFW Capital Partners IV, L.P., an investment partnership dedicated to making control investments in lower-middle market service companies. DFW IV is capitalized with $162.5 million in commitments from institutional and select individual investors, as well as a significant commitment from the General Partner. To date, DFW IV has invested in three operating businesses – Information Innovators, Covenant Surgical Partners and Sebela Pharmaceuticals.
“We are deeply grateful for the support of our existing fund investors, who increased their commitments to DFW IV significantly from the prior fund, and are excited to welcome many new limited partners as well,” noted Keith Pennell, Managing Partner of DFW. “We are particularly fortunate to have closed the fund in a relatively quick fashion, and to have been oversubscribed – exceeding our original fundraising target of $150 million. We look forward to continuing to employ our disciplined investment strategy and building a strong portfolio of unique, service-oriented businesses.”
In Fund IV, DFW welcomed sizeable commitments from several new institutional investors, including domestic and European funds of funds, insurance companies, pension funds, wealth management groups and family offices. Griffin Financial Group, LLC acted as placement agent.
DFW is actively seeking new platform investments in growing service companies, including healthcare services and general business and industrial outsourcing services. DFW seeks to invest up to $20 million of its own capital in each opportunity, but can lead significantly larger deals with the support of its institutional co-investors.
