New Orleans (March 20, 2012) - LongueVue Capital (“LVC”), a New Orleans-based private equity firm, today announced the final closing of LongueVue Capital Partners II, L.P.

LVC’s principals work closely with management partners to create value by implementing growth strategies and driving operational improvements. LVC takes both control and non-control positions, providing capital for buy-outs, recapitalizations, acquisitions, and growth.

“We are delighted to announce the closing of LVC II and are grateful for the confidence placed in us by our limited partners,” said Rick Rees, Co-founder and Managing Partner of LongueVue Capital. “Our success in fundraising is reflective of our disciplined investment process, strong track record in the lower middle market, and highly experienced investment team. We look forward to leveraging our experience and prior success to identify attractive investment opportunities for LVC II and build great companies.”
