Tritium Partners has held a final closing of Tritium II LP with $465 million of committed capital. Tritium’s first fund closed in November 2015 with $309 million of committed capital.
Fund II was oversubscribed and was supported by both existing investors, who in aggregate increased their commitment level in this fund, and several new institutional investors. The new fund, which launched with an initial target of $375 million, was raised in eight months and closed at its hard cap.
Fund II investors include retirement systems, private pension plans, university endowments, foundations, financial institutions and insurance companies.
Tritium Partners specializes in buyouts of growth companies in the lower middle market. Typical target companies will have EBITDAs from $2 million to $15 million. Sectors of interest include Internet and information services, supply chain and logistics, and financial and business services. Tritium was founded in 2013 and is based in Austin (www.tritiumpartners.com).
