Kohlberg closes on USD2.2bn Kohlberg Investors VIII

Kohlberg & Company, a private equity firm specialising in middle market investing, has held the final closing of its eighth private equity fund, Kohlberg Investors VIII, with USD2.2 billion in total commitments.

The fund was oversubscribed and closed at its hard cap due to strong support from existing limited partners, coupled with commitments from new institutional investors.
“We are deeply gratified by the tremendous support from our existing limited partner base and pleased to welcome several new, distinguished limited partners to Fund VIII,” says Sam Frieder, managing partner at Kohlberg. “Our success in raising the fund is continued validation of our investment philosophy and the strength and quality of our team.”
Over 70 investors participated as limited partners in Kohlberg Investors VIII, including a broad mix of public and corporate pension funds, endowments, insurance companies and family offices across the globe.
Lazard acted as placement agent for Kohlberg, while Ropes & Gray served as legal counsel in the formation of Kohlberg Investors VIII.
