Spell Capital Partners LLC Announces the Closing of Fund V

Spell Capital Equity Partners is pleased to announce the closing of Spell Capital Partners Fund V, LP, a $68.0 million private equity fund focused on the buyout of industrial manufacturing businesses. Fund V has acquired its first three platform investments and is actively seeking additional investment opportunities.

Bill Spell, President and Founder, stated, “It’s an exciting time for Spell Capital; Fund V was 35% oversubscribed.”

Spell Capital is celebrating our 29th anniversary as a firm, and our current equity buyout Fund V will allow us, and our partners, to capitalize on our niche in the lower middle market which continues to bring us unique investment opportunities. In addition, our first mezzanine vehicle, Spell Capital Mezzanine Partners SBIC LP, closed on its 25th investment during 2016.
