Tokyo, Japan, October 2, 2017 – Nippon Sangyo Suishin Kiko ("NSSK"), a leading Japanese private equity firm targeting control acquisitions of quality middle market companies, announced today that it has completed a final closing last month for NSSK II, with total investor commitments of JPY60 billion.
The oversubscribed investment partnership experienced significant demand with support from a diverse range of institutional investors from North America, Europe, and Asia. Eaton Partners, a wholly owned subsidiary of Stifel Financial Corp. (NYSE: SF), served as international advisor and exclusive placement agent to NSSK in the offering of NSSK II.
"We are honored to have received tremendous support from such a quality group of investors," said Jun Tsusaka, Founding Member and Managing Partner of NSSK. "With the closing of NSSK II, we are very well positioned and appropriately resourced to continue to pursue the investment strategy successfully executed by our senior team over the past decade. Our mission is to build a best-in-class investment firm to generate superior returns on our investments."
"It was a privilege to work with NSSK. Tsusaka-san has built a first class organization. It’s rare to find such a pedigreed and experienced team that at the same time is so passionate, tenacious and hands-on." said Chris Lerner, Partner and Head of Asia at Eaton Partners. "NSSK is representative of a new breed of independent private equity manager applying global best practices to the middle market in Asia. The successful closing of NSSK II is a testament to the firm’s quality, reputation and track record as a leading investor and value added partner in Japan."
