KENDA Equity Partners, L.P. (the “Fund”) was formed to invest primarily in profitable public or private U.S.-based companies undergoing an LBO or MBO. The Fund raises commitments from limited partners. The Fund’s strategy leverages the recruiting, M&A and leadership experience of the Investment Manager and its ability to identify and evaluate investment opportunities, and to support the growth of the partnership’s portfolio companies. The Fund will seek investments of $1 million to $5 million per portfolio company and will invest primarily in recapitalization and buyout opportunities where it is typically all or part of the first institutional investor group and has control or significant governance influence. The Fund will target a gross annual internal rate of return (“IRR”) of 25% and a 3x multiple of invested capital. The Partnership’s primary investment objective is to seek high absolute risk-adjusted returns with a specific focus on companies and investments undergoing an LBO or MBO.
