Cotton Creek invests from $10 million to $40 million in companies with EBITDA between $5 million and $15 million. Sectors of interest include manufacturing, value-added distribution, industrial, specialty chemical, building products, food and beverage, and business services.

“The closing of this fund represents a continuation of our relationship-based investment strategy focused on operational execution in the lower middle market,” said Antonio DiGesualdo, managing partner at Cotton Creek. “Our experience enables us to work alongside our management teams to develop a focused vision and execution plan, based on company-specific growth objectives.”

Limited partners in the new fund include high net worth families and individuals, multi-family offices, endowments and foundations.

“We appreciate the support of our investors for our Solution Capital investment strategy,” added Lee Rash, a partner ay Cotton Creek. “We look forward to continued success collaborating with management teams in the lower middle market to support the growth and development of market-leading businesses.”
