Saothair Capital Partners Closes Inaugural Fund at $125 Million

“We launched fundraising on our inaugural fund in late May 2023 only after testing the waters with potential anchors. When the response was favorable, we transitioned quickly into a full fundraising process, but one that was focused on the right type of partners for long-term success in building our franchise. Momentum built quickly, we exceeded our initial target within 3 months, and we closed at our hard cap within 5 months of launch.

I attribute the success of our fundraise to (a) having a truly differentiated strategy as a deep value / special situations buyer, focused exclusively on manufacturing where our team has decades of experience, (b) a long-term relationship between the founding partners, bringing complementary expertise in dealmaking and operations, and (c) outstanding partners in our placement agent Pacenote and legal counsel McGuireWoods, each of whom demonstrated their commitment to working with us and helped attract premier institutional investors.” – Kevin Madden, Co-Founder
