Yukon Partners (Yukon) has held the final closing of Yukon Capital Partners III, and its associated parallel funds, at its hard cap of USD558.7 million in total capital commitments.
Since its inception in 2008, Yukon has raised over USD1.2 billion in total capital commitments across three funds. Fund III will be invested by Yukon’s partner group; Michael Hall, William Dietz, and Michael Furey who combined, have executed more than 81 investments representing over USD1.3 billion of invested capital since 2000.
Fund III continues Yukon’s mission of providing mezzanine capital to middle market businesses primarily in transactions controlled by private equity sponsors.
“Since founding Yukon, we have remained focused on our middle market niche and have consistently generated attractive investments across all business cycles,” says William Dietz, Managing Partner of Yukon. Fund III has invested USD85 million through three completed transactions since the fund began investing in June 2017.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to continue investing on behalf of our loyal and supportive investor base, and excited to work with our new limited partners participating in Fund III. Investors include both domestic and international pension funds, insurance companies, endowments, foundations, consultants, and family offices,” says Michael Hall Managing Partner of Yukon.
Dorsey & Whitney and Schiff Hardin served as legal counsel and Credit Suisse’s Private Fund Group acted as an advisor and exclusive placement agent for Fund III.
