Inflexion closes Co-Investment Fund in record time

Inflexion Private Equity today announces the single closing of its 2012 Co-Investment Fund (“the Fund”). Initially targeting £75 million, the Fund reached its hard cap of £100m within six weeks of launching the PPM due to overwhelming support from existing investors.

The Fund will co-invest alongside Inflexion’s £375m 2010 Buyout Fund continuing the firm’s successful strategy of investing in UK mid-market buyouts and working in partnership with its portfolio companies to optimise performance.

Simon Turner, Managing Partner at Inflexion, commented: “We are delighted to have again received such overwhelming support from our LPs. Since we raised the 2010 Fund we have seen, and closed, a number of buyouts with substantial follow-on investment opportunities. This Co-Investment Fund will enable us the flexibility to capitalise on these opportunities whilst maintaining diversity in our main fund.”

Established in 1999, Inflexion is now one of the leading private equity investors in the UK mid market. So far 2012 has been a very busy year for the firm; completing three buyouts (NPW, Marston Group and CTC Aviation Group) and a highly profitable exit (Harrington Brooks), as well as expanding its team through the addition of portfolio support offices in Brazil, China and India.
