One Equity Partners
Investec supports One Equity Partners with a financing solution for their new Continuation Fund
The Investec Fund Solutions team supported One Equity Partners with a financing solution, to part-fund the acquisition of two Portfolio Companies; USCO and DWK Life Sciences.
One Equity Partners successfully ran an oversubscribed fundraising process attracting $1 billion of capital commitments from a number of investors in the secondaries market for their first Continuation Fund.
Investec acted as the lead arranger and structuring bank in the debt package, to provide One Equity Partners a tailored solution to support the funding of the purchase price, as well as ongoing capacity for future M&A and growth for the two European portfolio companies.
The Fund Solutions team were able to successfully deliver and execute a syndicated financing despite the headwinds in the wider economy. Investec are delighted to have established the relationship with One Equity Partners and look forward to continuing this partnership going forward.
