Inflexion announces the first and final close of its latest buyout fund

Inflexion Private Equity, the mid market private equity investor, today announces the first and final close of its 2010 Buyout Fund with commitments of £375m. The Fund was more than twice oversubscribed and fundraising was completed in an unusually fast timetable, beginning in June and securing the single and final close on plan, at the end of September.

The Fund includes investment from a high quality and well-diversified group of almost 30 LPs, including state pension and endowment funds from the US and new investors from Asia and Australia. It was overwhelmingly supported by existing investors.

Inflexion is one of the leading private equity investors in the UK mid market with c. £700 million funds under management. The 2010 Buyout Fund will target 10 to 15 investments in high growth UK companies with enterprise values ranging from £10 million to £100 million. It has a large team dedicated to sourcing and executing deals, working in partnership with its portfolio to optimise performance, increase profitability and maximise value for all shareholders.

Simon Turner, Managing Partner at Inflexion, commented: “We are delighted to have received such strong support from existing investors in Inflexion funds and completed our fundraising within such an efficient timetable. We are equally pleased to welcome a selection of new investors to the Fund, diversifying our capital base by geography and provenance.  Inflexion will continue to invest in the UK mid market where we have built an exciting portfolio of growing businesses and see good quality investment opportunities for the future.”
