Goodwin Advised Naxicap Partners On The Fundraising Of Naxicap Investment Opportunities Ii

The Goodwin Paris Private Investment Funds team advised Naxicap Partners, one of the leading European private equity companies based in France, on the fundraising of Naxicap Investment Opportunities II, for a total amount of €856 million.

Naxicap Partners raised €856 million for the Fund, its largest fundraising with investor commitments significantly exceeding expectations. Coupled with an additional €700 million from co-investments and specific mandates, Naxicap Partners secured aggregate commitments of €1.5 billion.

The Fund secured commitments from a diverse group of more than 25 international investors, consisting of insurance companies, pension funds, funds of funds and family offices.

The Fund has been raised to continue Naxicap Partners’ successful path of acquiring majority stakes in fast-growing European mid-cap businesses. It has already deployed circa 70% of the committed capital through 13 investments across continental Europe, and created a well-diversified portfolio consisting of companies from the healthcare (50%), education (16%), tech (15%) and e-mobility (7%) sectors.

The Goodwin team was led by Sarah Michel on fund formation aspects and Marie-Laure Bruneel on tax aspects.
