Mobeus invested £13.1 million for a minority stake in the business, which has experienced rapid growth, with revenues doubling over the previous three years.
Less than three years after the investment, Mobeus sold Access to Mayfair Equity Partners, a well regarded UK mid-market private equity firm.
With Mobeus’s backing Access and its team grew both organically and through acquisition. During the investment term, in addition to a £7 million refinancing, Mobeus helped Access to complete two bolt-on acquisitions in Singapore, adding c. £1.5 million to profits. This resulted in a doubling of the business in headcount to 120 people, and growth in revenues from £11 million to £25 million. The sale delivered a 4.4x MoC and 64% IRR return for Mobeus IV.
