H.I.G. Capital Closes H.I.G. Capital Partners V at $1 Billion
MIAMI – March 4, 2013 – H.I.G. Capital announced today that it has successfully closed H.I.G. Capital Partners V at its $1 billion cap. The fund will continue the strategy of H.I.G. Capital’s four predecessor funds, focusing on private equity, buyout and equity-related investments in lower middle-market companies primarily in the United States.
Sami Mnaymneh and Tony Tamer, co-founders and Managing Partners of H.I.G. Capital, commented: “We are very pleased with how quickly we were able to raise H.I.G.’s fifth buyout fund and, in particular, that the fund was significantly over-subscribed from existing H.I.G. investors.” Doug Berman, Executive Managing Director of H.I.G. Capital, added: “The new fund will allow us to continue our successful strategy of investing in privately-held companies and non-core subsidiaries of larger companies that present significant opportunities for earnings improvement and value creation.”
