Our role

We provided a bilateral senior debt package in support of Inflexion's majority investment in Sparta Global (“Sparta”).

Investec was able to deliver a financing commitment in an accelerated timescale while preserving strict transaction confidentiality during execution.


The Deal

Inflexion was able to leverage their strong sector track record to execute a majority investment in Sparta in an off-market transaction in October 2020, and will partner with Sparta’s management team to build on the company’s established growth profile.

"We are delighted to have supported Inflexion and Sparta’s highly ambitious management team as they embark on the next phase of growth”
- Greg Betz, Investec
