NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Atlantic-Pacific Capital, Inc. (“Atlantic-Pacific”), one of the largest independently owned global placement and advisory firms focused on alternative investments, announced the final closing of Waterous Energy Fund, L.P. (“Fund I” or the “Fund”) at its hard cap of C$1.4 billion (US$1.0 billion) in capital commitments, exceeding its target of C$1.0 billion (US$750 million). The Fund received strong backing from endowment, family office, pension fund, advisory and financial institution investors located across North America. Founded in 2017 by Adam Waterous, Calgary-based Waterous Energy Fund (“Waterous” or “WEF”) makes later-stage control investments in established North American oil and gas companies with top tier assets which require recapitalization, restructuring or repositioning to unlock value.
“Waterous represents a unique combination of experience, senior leadership and prior success within the oil and gas sector,” commented Raed Elkhatib, CEO and President of Atlantic-Pacific Capital. “The firm’s recognition of changing industry dynamics, including recent improvements in drilling technology and movement away from the growth capital model, has enabled the team to identify a unique approach to investing in oil and gas assets. Atlantic-Pacific congratulates the entire Waterous team on hitting the hard cap for Fund I and wishes the firm and its investors continued success," added Peter Larsen, Partner of Atlantic-Pacific Capital.
Mr. Waterous, Managing Partner and CEO of WEF, further stated, “Atlantic-Pacific provided expertise in bringing our story to the broader marketplace and navigating the capital raising process. We are also particularly grateful for the support from our highly respected limited partners, and we continue to be focused on generating attractive returns to our investors.”
