Hark Capital Closes on $645 Million in Capital Commitments for Fund IV

July 9, 2024

DALLAS, July 09, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- P10, Inc. (NYSE: PX), a leading private markets solutions provider, today announced that its affiliated manager, Hark Capital (“Hark”), a provider of flexible Net Asset Value (“NAV”) credit solutions to lower middle market sponsors, announced the final closing of Hark Capital IV (“Fund IV” or the “Fund”). With $645 million in capital commitments, inclusive of LP and GP commitments, the Fund meaningfully exceeded its $500 million cover. The Fund received strong reups from its existing limited partners as well as significant commitments from new investors. Hark’s limited partners include prominent U.S. insurance companies, public pension plans, and family offices.

The total capital commitments for Fund IV represent more than a 60% increase compared to its Fund III, and an increase of approximately 220% compared to Fund II.

“Hark Capital IV is our largest fund close to date and demonstrates the momentum we have as pioneers in NAV lending,” said Doug Cruikshank, Hark Founder and Managing Partner. “Current conditions in the private equity market, including the effects of higher interest rates, have created unprecedented demand for the use of NAV loans by financial sponsors. We remain focused on our mission to partner with GPs to strategically improve the performance of their portfolio companies on behalf of their LPs.”

Hark provides NAV loans to lower middle market private equity and growth equity funds, their portfolio companies, and their management companies. These loans are non-dilutive and supply growth and support capital. The firm has carved out a niche strategy that provides its limited partners an opportunity to achieve attractive risk-adjusted returns and compelling relative value compared to other asset classes.

"We congratulate Hark on this fund closing and capital raising milestone,” said Luke Sarsfield, P10 Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Hark is a first mover in NAV lending and has met a critical need in the lower middle market. The firm’s products increase optionality for both GPs and LPs to enhance their returns. Hark’s proven track record and differentiated network in the large and growing lower middle market positions the team to drive deal flow, launch additional funds, and deliver strong results in the years ahead.”
