Investcorp, an alternative investment firm, has announced the final closing of its Investcorp Technology Partners V (ITP V) fund at $570 million in total commitments. The fund exceeded its $500 million target with commitments from new and existing LPs in Europe, North America, Asia, and the GCC. 

ITP V marks the continuation of Investcorp’s lower mid-market technology strategy, which was established over 20 years ago to target growing B2B technology companies with proven products and end markets. ITP V will seek to invest in companies globally within software, data/analytics, cybersecurity, and fintech

The fund will look to take controlling stakes in companies with around $10 million or more in revenues and positive EBITDA that require equity investments of between $30-75 million, often as the first institutional investor. 

Investments by ITP V

ITP V has already made four investments in companies that span each of the fund’s specific focus areas. These include VEDA, an HR software from Germany; HWG Sababa, a cybersecurity company from Italy; Zift Solutions, a PRM software from the US; and NetRom, a software engineering company from the Netherlands. 

ITP V is the successor to the $400 million fund ITP IV, which invested in companies such as softgarden, an HR software from Germany; Avira, a cybersecurity company from Germany; Ageras, an accountancy software from Denmark; and Impero, an education software from the US.
