The Inflexion investment
Inflexion’s initial minority investment in March 2017 enabled the business to pursue several international acquisitions and strength its operations. The next stage of the firm’s expansion will continue to be supported by Inflexion through its Buyout Fund VI, with Partnership Capital exiting its stake following an independently managed process.
The Inflexion difference
Over the past five years Inflexion has worked closely with K2 to develop an international offering of scale, completing five add-on acquisitions in the US, Asia, and Europe to broaden K2’s product and geographic offering. Inflexion also supported significant investment into talent, technology, and infrastructure, while Inflexion’s local teams provided strong on-the-ground expertise in North America and Latin America. Inflexion’s Latin America team also provided significant support to K2 which helped grow the business in this key market.
Inflexion is continuing to support K2's ambitious growth plans in a fast-growing international market.
We’ve taken our business to the next level, with Inflexion’s support. Their deep sector knowledge and international presence have been invaluable as we’ve grown. A special mention goes to the entire K2 team and community across the globe; their expertise, passion and ambition combined with Inflexion’s support has created a best-in-class provider of human capital solutions in the Enterprise applications space. I look forward to continuing to accelerate our growth internationally.
