TriWest Capital Partners Announces the Closing of its $250 Million Third Fund

CALGARY, July 25 – Building on its previous success, TriWest Capital Partners has closed its third fund, TriWest Capital Partners III, L.P. (“Fund III”), with commitments totaling $250 million. Strong relationships with its existing and two new Limited Partners allowed TriWest to complete the fundraising process within three months. TriWest’s investment strategy for Fund III will remain consistent with that of its previous two funds. It will make significant equity investments in profitable mid-sized Canadian companies in partnership with existing management teams. TriWest will seek to generate superior financial returns through the pursuit of growth opportunities and a focus on operational excellence. Fund III will target companies with operating earnings in the range of $10 million to $40 million (or higher in certain circumstances). In conjunction with the closing of Fund III, Chad Danard and Ryan Giles were both appointed Vice Presidents.
