Frontier Capital Exceeds Target, Closes Fund III at $250 Million
CHARLOTTE, NC (June 18, 2012) – Frontier Capital is pleased to announce the final closing of its third private equity fund, Frontier Fund III, L.P., with $250 million in capital commitments.
The fund exceeded its initial target of $200 million thanks to strong support from existing investors along with new commitments from other leading institutional investors including public and private pensions, fund of funds and family offices.
“We are thrilled by the continued support we’ve received from our existing partners and very pleased to welcome several strong additions to our investor base,” remarked Richard Maclean, Managing Partner. “Our success in raising Fund III is a testament to our focused approach and the strength and quality of our team.”
Frontier has completed three initial Fund III investments, deploying $50 million of capital in the last 15 months, including Celergo, a provider of consolidated global payroll services; Healthx, a provider of online healthcare portals to health insurers, medical providers and employees; and eVerifile, a provider of background risk assessment, administrative support and workforce solutions.
Established in 1999, Frontier is a Charlotte-based growth equity firm focused exclusively on technology enabled business services. Frontier typically invests in companies with revenues of $5 million to $30 million and seeks to provide $5 million to $25 million of equity capital in a transaction.
Andrew Lindner, Managing Partner, commented, “As we invest Fund III, we will continue our proven approach of investing in technology enabled business services which has resulted in a successful track record for both our investors and management partners. We look forward to partnering with strong entrepreneurs and management teams in high growth opportunities.”
