International law firm Clifford Chance has advised private equity firm EOS Partners GmbH on the successful fundraising of its inaugural fund, EOS Fund I.
The fund closed at the hard cap of EUR 175 million, with a significant commitment by the EOS team. The fundraise exceeded its target and was oversubscribed with a diverse group of leading institutional investors from Europe and the United States.
EOS’ investment objective is to acquire controlling positions in companies headquartered in the DACH-region, typically investing 5 million to 30 million Euro of equity per transaction. Two platform investments from the fund have already been successfully completed.
Founded in 2015 by the three private equity specialists Peter Winkler, Philipp Wegener and Thomas Röhrl, EOS focuses on investing in proven small and mid-sized enterprises with competitive advantages in growing markets, concentrating on digitalization, sales and operational efficiency.
The international Clifford Chance team advising EOS comprised partner Sonya Pauls and associates Kevin Merchant, Thomas Canny, Adrian Pun and Tobias Koch (all Corporate/Private Equity, Munich), partner Jan Grabbe and senior associate Andrius Bielinis (both Tax, Frankfurt) as well as further advisors from the firm’s national and international offices.
