Kirkland & Ellis advised American Pacific Group (“APG”), a San Francisco Bay Area-based private equity firm focused on partnering with lower middle market companies across industries in North America, on the closing of its second fund, American Pacific Group Fund II, in December 2022 with $700 million of committed limited partner capital. The Fund was oversubscribed and closed at its hard cap without the use of a placement agent following the launch of the fundraise in September 2022. APG secured commitments from a diversified investor base comprised of leading institutional limited partners based in the U.S. and Europe, including endowments, foundations, a healthcare system, insurance companies, family offices, pension systems and asset managers.
