Chicago-based Shorehill Capital, a private equity firm focused on industrial product and distribution platforms, announced it has exceeded its $250 million funding target, which will allow it to continue to focus on the lower middle market.
On Nov. 16, the firm announced it has accepted $260 million in commitments, and closed the oversubscribed Shorehill Private Equity II LP (Fund II). In addition to a significant commitment from the general partner, Fund II received commitments from returning Fund I investors, new investors, and members of the Shorehill Executive Advisor Network.
For three decades, members of the Shorehill team have partnered with executives at industrial companies in an effort to accelerate growth and improve operational performance through structured investment management plans. Shorehill seeks opportunities with differentiated business models where it believes the firm’s experience, network and investment management approach will have a significant impact on the performance of the business, firm officials said in the news release.
