Catalyst Investors, a private equity fund with a focus on media, telecommunications and related Internet services, has announced the final closings of two funds — Catalyst Investors II, LP and Catalyst UK Partners, LP with USD170 million in aggregate committed capital.

Catalyst Investors II, LP expects to invest in approximately 10-15 companies over the life of the fund and has made four investments to date. The fund will invest in small- and medium-sized businesses within traditional and growth sectors of the media and communications and related Internet industries. Investors in the fund include a broad range of leading institutions as well as current and former senior executives of leading companies within the sectors targeted by the Fund.

"The final closing of these funds marks an important milestone for Catalyst,’ says Managing Partner Brian Rich. ‘The media and communications and Internet services industries continue to offer some of the best investment prospects today in terms of organic industry growth, and the size of our target companies makes them ideal for consolidation and roll-up opportunities."

Catalyst UK Partners, LP is a special purpose vehicle which was created to effect a single targeted acquisition, which has been completed.

Ryan McNally, General Partner of Catalyst said, "We are well positioned to identify and invest in unique business opportunities with significant growth prospects in these dynamic sectors. We believe our investment model produces superior returns through all types of investment cycles." Fellow General Partner Chris Shipman added, "We have been very effective at researching industry growth trends, and buying or building leading companies that take advantage of such trends."

BerchWood Partners acted as global placement agent for the limited partnership offering.
