Kirkland & Ellis advised Inflexion on the formation of Inflexion Buyout Fund VI, which recently held its final closing at its £2.5 billion hard cap. The fund, which successfully raised more than double the prior fund, reflects investors’ conviction in Inflexion’s ability to continue its successful track record of addressing the growing private equity market opportunity in the UK and Europe.
Buyout Fund VI will focus on companies in the UK and Europe with an enterprise value of up to £1 billion across the core sectors of Business Services, Technology, Healthcare, Industrials, Consumer and Financial Services and will be complemented by Inflexion’s existing family of funds (including Partnership Capital, its dedicated minority investment fund, and Enterprise Fund, its lower mid-market buyout fund).
The Kirkland team was led by investment funds partners Amala Ejikeme and Richard Watkins and included investment funds partner Agne (AJ) Eriksson and associates Oliver Cutbill, Ediz Osman, Alexander Clarke, Hannah Wilson and Sonam Shah. The team also included tax partners Ian Ferreira, Lee K. Morlock and Michael J. Milazzo and associates Loviisa Langdon, Ted Meddick-Dyson, Frankie Beetham and Grant Michael Newman, financial services regulatory partners Prem Mohan and Joshua Westerholm and associates Arnold Krutilins and Tim Nolan, and debt finance partner Susannah Amini.
