    This proprietary transaction was an opportunity to lead a tender offer for LP interests in a single fund, managed by a well established and recognized GP. The portfolio was composed of 1 Buyout LP interest consisting of 12 European underlying assets well diversified in term of sectors. This transaction is a repeat Seller / Situation, as Ardian already backed a tender offer for this GP in 2016 (Project Phantom).

    A US public pension fund was looking to reduce the number of funds and GPs in their portfolio in order to focus the efforts of the small PE team on the core relationships. The portfolio for sale was comprised of top tier buyout managers, principally in North America, Europe and Asia. Ardian’s strong existing coverage and knowledge of the funds allowed it to perform extensive due diligence on the underlying portfolio and to ultimately execute the transaction in a semi-broken auction process. The seller decided to work with Ardian given its certainty and speed of execution as well as the strong support received by the underlying GPs with which Ardian had established relationships.
