Mandarin Capital Partners, a Milan, Italy-based private equity firm that specializes in investing in, and supporting mid-size European commercial exporters to grow globally, particularly in China, reached the final close of its second fund, MCP II, reaching just under €200m.
LPs include Italian investors, who had already participated in MCP I, including Banca Intesa Sanpaolo, as well as new commitments from international investors ranging from HarbourVest, Neuberger Berman, LGT, LFPE, Idinvest, HQ-Auda, the family office of Roland Berger, and Guosen Securities, the second largest Chinese brokerage firm, with nearly 12,000 employees and a strategic partner for the Intesa group.
MCP II has already deployed nearly €40m in two completed deals and is in the process of completing three more, including the recently signed agreement to purchase majority control of Ladurner Ambiente via a strategic partnership with Zoomlion Heavy Industry, the Shanghai-listed, construction and environmental machinery maker.
The firm has offices in Frankfurt and Shanghai offices.
MCP I (2008) has made ten investments, of which seven have been fully exited with the balance expected to be sold by early 2018.
