In December 2016 Connection Capital clients completed a substantial investment in EPI Group in the form of first ranking, high yielding investor debt, with equity warrants for upside participation.
The funds provided EPI with flexible debt to pursue acquisitions and other value added growth opportunities.
EPI is a private equity backed provider of consultancy services to the energy industry with a particular focus on supervising and advising on marine and land seismic surveys for oil and gas exploration companies.
The MBO of EPI was backed in 2014 by Palatine Private Equity (“PPE”), a well-regarded UK mid-market private equity manager. We know PPE well and in November 2015 led a successful loan investment in another PPE backed company, Selection Services, achieving an exit well ahead of schedule in January 2016, generating in just three months a net return for our clients of 1.3x money, equivalent to an IRR of 180%.
