Committed Capital closes EUR55m fund
Amsterdam-based Committed Capital has raised EUR55 million in two months for its third investment vehicle from entrepreneurs, family offices and institutional investors, both in and beyond the Netherlands.
The fund, which closed in January, was oversubscribed, while a large part of the subscriptions came from existing investors in the previous fund, said the PE firm.
With the new fund Committed Capital will continue to focus on substantial stakes in Dutch SMEs with an EBITDA between EUR1 million and EUR5 million, as well as a clear ambition to at least double the EBITDA over the participation period, whether or not through an active buy & build strategy.
Founded in 2008, Committed Capital’s investment policy means supporting entrepreneurs with their growth ambitions. “We operate in a very interesting but competitive segment of the market,” said Wai Ki Chiu, partner at Committed Capital.
“Committed Capital focuses on owner-managed companies that are looking for a partner to grow in a controlled way and to exploit the full potential of the company. The successful fundraising shows the confidence of investors in the market segment and our ability to create value,” he added.
With investments in companies such as Verasol, DataExpert, Creative Group and FYEO, Committed Capital has a track record in supporting entrepreneurs that are experiencing accelerated growth.
The Netherlands-focused GPs portfolio also includes Creative Group, DataExpert and Marbami.
