Hidden Harbor Capital closes USD265-plus million debut fund

Private equity firm Hidden Harbor Capital Partners (Hidden Harbor) has closed its debut buyout fund at over USD265 million, above its target, with contributions from a balanced mix of endowments, foundations, pensions, family offices and funds of funds.

“We are humbled by all of the support from our limited partners, and look forward to building great companies rooted in our core values of integrity, team, high-performance, passion and a commitment to constant improvement,” says John Caple, Managing Partner.
Hidden Harbor was formed in 2016 by industry veterans John Caple, David Block and Christopher Paldino, and places a distinct emphasis on its leadership team’s significant hands-on investing and operating experience, and its strict focus on the power and importance of human relationships as the core of every business.
Since its founding, Hidden Harbor has completed four acquisitions including Stella Environmental Services, a leading waste transfer station manager, Cloyes Gear & Products, the US leader of timing drive systems and components for the automotive aftermarket, Masterwork Electronics, a premier Electronics Manufacturing Service (EMS) provider and Anchor Danly, the leading North American manufacturer and distributor of critical industrial tooling and related components.
With this new fund Hidden Harbor will continue to seek out platform investment opportunities in US-based companies with revenues between USD50 and USD500 million and EBITDA up to USD25 million with the willingness to look at unprofitable businesses.
Probitas Partners acted as the exclusive placement agent and Kirkland & Ellis acted as fund counsel for Hidden Harbor.
