aPriori Capital Partners announces the successful wind-up of DLJ Merchant Banking Partners Fund III (“MBPIII”). MBPIII investors were provided the option of full liquidity for their interests in the fund or re-investment in a small group of MBPIII’s remaining assets. A consortium of investors provided the funding for those MBPIII investors choosing the liquidity option.
Since its inception in 2000, MBPIII has generated outstanding performance for our investors. In total, the $5.6 billion of original investment cost has generated $14.2 billion in gross proceeds or 2.5x cost and a gross IRR of 27%. These results are a testament to the efforts and dedication of MBPIII’s investment and administration professionals and our portfolio company partners alike.
With the wind-up of MBPIII, the aPriori team would like to thank all of our MBPIII investors for their support over the past 15 years. We look forward to continuing to work together in the future. As the private equity industry continues to grow and mature, achieving superior performance requires focus, deep experience and exceptional capabilities in identifying attractive investments and enhancing portfolio returns post-investment. aPriori remains committed to these objectives and to our investors.
