of the Year
This award is open to private equity houses with an office in the UK as well as a demonstrable track record of focusing on the country over the judging period targeting deals with enterprise values of up to £50m. This award is not awarded for the firm's work on one particular transaction but for consistently high standards during the whole of the 12 months under consideration, including fundraising.
Elysian Capital
Elysian Capital
The last 12 months have been a strong period for Elysian Capital. The firm acquired Aspirations Care in June 2019, Mergon International in December 2019, and SCX Special Projects in January 2020. It exited Pebble Group via IPO in December 2019 for a 4.3x multiple and Wellbeing Software in April 2020 for a 4.5x multiple. In February 2020, the GP launched Elysian Fund III at the onset of the Covid-19 crisis. Despite the challenging landscape, Elysian raised £270m for a first close in June 2020 (and went on to exceed its £300m target at final close in September). Total equity invested totaled £48.4m, with £154.4m returned through the two exits. The Elysian team has been together since foundation in 2008 and has never had a senior executive leaver.
