Amsterdam, May 18, 2020 – Committed Capital announces that it has raised €55 million for its third investment fund. The fundraising was successfully completed in just two months and could count on a great demand from wealthy entrepreneurs, family offices and institutional investors from both in and beyond the Netherlands. The fund was substantially oversubscribed, while a large part of the subscriptions came from investors in the previous fund. The successful fundraising for the new fund confirms the support for the investment policy of Committed Capital: Supporting entrepreneurs in achieving their growth ambitions.
With investments in companies such as Verasol, DataExpert, Creative Group and FYEO, Committed Capital has a proven track record in supporting entrepreneurs that are experiencing accelerated growth and are looking for a partner to professionalize, mainly by strengthening the (management) team.
With the new fund, Committed Capital will continue to focus on substantial stakes in Dutch SMEs with an operating profit (EBITDA) between €1 million and €5 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.
Wai Ki Chiu, partner at Committed Capital: “We operate in a very interesting but competitive segment of the market. Committed Capital successfully 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.”
