Blue Wolf Capital Partners Raises $540M For Oversubscribed Fourth Fund

Oct 23 2017 | 11:17pm ET

Private equity company Blue Wolf Capital Partners has raised $540 million in capital commitments for its fourth buyout fund, beating its original target of $525 million and closing at its hard cap.

The new fund, named Blue Wolf Capital Fund IV, was oversubscribed, the company said in a statement. As with its predecessors, Fund IV will make control investments in middle-market companies that operate in industries Blue Wolf knows well, including healthcare, building products, forest products, energy services, and defense and government services. 

Blue Wolf typically makes investments which involve resolving complex challenges often related to leadership transition, corporate carve-outs, operational or financial distress, labor relations or government regulation. 

The company’s previous fund raised $300 million in July 2013.

Founded in 2005 by former New York City deputy comptroller Adam Blumenthal and headquartered in the city, Blue Wolf now manages over $1.2 billion in capital and capital commitments for a wide variety of institutional investors.
