The Inflexion investment
Inflexion provided minority capital to the business in October 2012, supporting the acquisition of the capital markets corporate business of State Street Jersey Limited.
The Inflexion difference
During our involvement we supported two acquisitions from State Street, both of which added considerable scale, international reach and profitability to Sanne.
Inflexion encouraged management to invest in highly skilled people, adding further strength to the team. During our partnership, headcount in the business grew by over 80%. Sanne drew support from Inflexion’s international teams in India and China to explore growth opportunities within those local markets; the business also expanded its footprint opening an office in Singapore. Between 2012 and 2014 the company generated revenue growth of 38% CAGR and EBITDA growth of 45% CAGR.
Inflexion were a very supportive partner and encouraged the team to challenge its ambitions, which enabled us to create a step change in the business. Their guidance during both acquisitions was invaluable and helping us strengthen the senior team with high quality appointments and leaves our business very well placed for the future.
