Mid Europa Limits PE Fund Size Amid Investor Backlash

viewpointSovereign wealth funds and public pensions continue to commit capital to European buyout private equity. A fundamental concern for institutional investors is the amount of quality deal flow versus the limited partner capital being committed. For example, Mid Europa Partners LLP, a private equity buyout firm focused on companies in Central and Eastern Europe and Turkey, has been forced to amend the size of their latest fund called Mid Europa Fund IV. This buyout fund will target companies with enterprise values between €100 to €500 million in regions such as Central Europe, the Balkans and Turkey.

Times were better before the crisis for private equity fundraisers.

The reasoning for the size modification is that the larger limited partners were concerned about the dwindling number of potential deals and size of deal opportunities in the region.
