Blue Wolf Capital closes fifth fund on $1.1bn

Monday, April 04, 2022
Opalesque Industry Update - Blue Wolf Capital Partners LLC, a New York-based private equity firm, today announced it has successfully closed Blue Wolf Capital Fund V (the "Fund") at its hard cap. The Fund was oversubscribed with strong support from existing investors along with a diverse base of new partners, including pension funds, endowments, foundations, fund-of-funds, family offices and consultants.

The Fund will continue Blue Wolf's investment strategy by targeting investments in middle market companies across its healthcare and industrial sectors. Through the Fund, Blue Wolf will continue to build upon its proprietary investment approach, which combines financial and operational discipline with Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles. Blue Wolf has deployed this strategy across its previous funds and with this capital raise, now manages approximately $2.9 billion in assets.

"We are proud to have closed Fund V with participation from both existing and new investors, enabling us to continue to deploy capital in our core verticals," said Adam Blumenthal, Founder, Chairman and Managing Partner of Blue Wolf. "This successful fundraise is a testament to the excellent performance our team has delivered over 17 years as we've executed on our differentiated and proven investment strategy. We are excited about our future with Fund V, which we are confident will be a prosperous investment program because our team and strategy are well suited to the dynamic times in which we are currently operating."

Jeremy Kogler, Managing Partner of Blue Wolf, added, "With the significant growth in capital, we have enhanced our team and capabilities to meet the growing demands of our portfolio. We look forward to leveraging our investment team, proven operational expertise and ESG principles to strategically deploy Fund V capital and execute on our pipeline of attractive opportunities, often proprietary ones, available to Blue Wolf due to our investment approach. We are confident in our ability to continue growing our firm with a focus on creating value for our investors."

During 2021, Blue Wolf added three new platforms to its portfolio, including the first platform for Fund V, exited three long-term investments and increased the size of its integrated team of investors and operators by 35 percent. The firm's integrated team of investors and operating partners continue to work closely with management teams to transform middle market businesses into market leaders.

Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC acted as private placement advisor and placement agent for the Fund, and Kirkland & Ellis served as legal counsel to Blue Wolf.
