Thus far, the fund has invested approximately USD600m in seven different companies.

Bennett Goodman, senior managing director of The Blackstone Group and co-founder of GSO Capital Partners, says: “There are many great business franchises facing liquidity issues. We’re delighted to have raised a new fund of this magnitude to assist mid-market companies with their financing needs.”
