Nautic Partners, LLC (“Nautic”), a leading middle-market private equity firm that focuses on investments in the healthcare, industrial products, and outsourced services sectors, has successfully completed its fund raising for Nautic Partners VIII (“Nautic VIII”). Nautic VIII closed on its hard cap of $900 million. Nautic began formal fund raising in October 2015 and raised its cap to $900 million after receiving strong demand from both new and existing investors.

“We are excited to announce our successful closing on Nautic VIII,” said Bernard Buonanno III, Managing Director at Nautic. “We believe the success of this fund raise is a strong endorsement of our ability to deliver long-term results for our investors. In Nautic VIII, we intend to continue to emphasize our expertise in our three primary sector verticals: healthcare, industrial products, and outsourced services. We have developed deep experience within these industries over the firm’s three decades of investing, and will seek to leverage the specialized knowledge and relationship networks we have generated in order to continue to drive performance for our investors. We will also remain focused on our strategy of improving the value of our portfolio companies by enhancing the depth of our management teams, initiating targeted operating initiatives, and closing add-on acquisitions that are both strategically and financially accretive.”

Founded as part of Fleet Bank in 1986, Nautic spun out in 2000 when it raised Nautic Partners V, its first independent fund. Nautic VIII is the firm’s eighth private equity fund and fourth independent fund.

Nautic is a middle-market private equity firm that focuses on three industries: healthcare, industrial products and outsourced services. Nautic has completed over 120 platform transactions throughout its 30-year history. Nautic’s strategy is to partner with management teams to accelerate the growth trajectory of its portfolio companies via add-on acquisitions, targeted operating initiatives, and increased management team depth. Nautic generally makes equity investments of $25 to $100 million.
