PFM Capital Inc. Announces Final Close of Apex III Investment Fund
Regina, Saskatchewan – PFM Capital Inc. (PFM) announces the final close of Apex III Investment Fund Limited Partnership (Apex III) at $103,400,000. Apex III is the successor fund in the Apex series of funds managed by PFM and is focused on a diversified portfolio of Western Canadian private equity investments.
Apex III provides institutional and accredited investors with access to participate in equity, near-equity or subordinated debt investments in mid-market private Western Canadian based companies that offer the potential for substantial capital appreciation or income generation. Focusing on the key industries that drive Western Canada’s economic strength – energy, value-added agriculture, industrials and manufacturing – capital is primarily deployed for the purposes of expansion, acquisition, or completing a management buyout.
Apex III builds on the success of its predecessor funds. Apex II Investment Fund LP which had a final fund size of $88.2 million, was launched in 2014 and Apex Investment Fund LP which had a final fund size of $95.3 million, was launched in 2007. Additionally, while PFM welcomes new Limited Partners to the Fund, many Apex III Limited Partners have participated in at least one other PFM-managed fund, demonstrating strong investor confidence in PFM’s investment strategy.
“Apex III will target mid-market companies with an enterprise value of between $20 and $50 million,” said Jeff Linner, PFM’s Chief Investment Officer. “Many of the major industries throughout Western Canada continue to see strong growth and a consistent need for management buyout transactions and Apex III is uniquely poised to take advantage of those trends.”
Apex III has already invested $10 million and anticipates placing the rest of its capital into a diversified portfolio of companies across Western Canada.
