“We are extremely grateful for the continued support we have received from our loyal investor base and excited by the new world-class pension plans, endowments and family offices that have partnered with us. We look forward to continuing to capitalize on our investing and operating experience to accelerate the growth of leading consumer products companies,” said Robert Brown, a Managing Director and Co-Founder of Encore.

“Encore’s talented and experienced investment team, along with the management professionals at each of our portfolio companies with whom we are proud to have partnered with over the years, have enabled us to earn the respect and trust of our investors,” said Scott Sellers, a Managing Director and Co-Founder of Encore. Encore, founded in 2005, will continue to invest in lower middle market companies with between $10 million and $100 million of annual revenues and with leading positions in attractive and under served segments of the consumer products industry.

Principals of Acalyx Advisors assisted Encore throughout the process*, allowing Encore to hold a first and final fund closing only two months after publishing the Private Placement Memorandum. “We are pleased to have worked with the team at Acalyx, which has been our long term advisor and has helped us achieve this successful outcome, during a busy and critical time in our firm’s history,” said Encore Managing Director Kevin Murphy.

Latham & Watkins LLP served as legal counsel to the Fund.
