Oct 3, 2016

Cassia Investments Invests in Ultimate Performance, an Internationally Acclaimed Personal Training Gym Company 2016-10-03 13:33 -The investment will help Ultimate Performance's global expansion in key cities throughout Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and North America HONG KONG and SINGAPORE, Oct. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cassia Investments ("Cassia"), a consumer-focused private equity firm which specializes in investing in lower middle-market companies across Greater China and Southeast Asia, today announced an investment of US$10 million in Ultimate Performance, a leading international personal training gym chain. Mayer Brown JSM served as legal advisor to Cassia for the transaction. The funds will be used to accelerate Ultimate Performance's global expansion strategy of its personal training gyms and supplements business, based on a targeted city-by-city approach. Founded in 2009 by Nick Mitchell, an internationally renowned body composition expert and personal trainer, Ultimate Performance has steadily built a highly-regarded brand name for itself and is one of the few international players in the personal training industry. Targeting consumers who value their health and wellbeing, it differentiates itself through its bespoke approach for each client, world-class personal trainers and facilities, and results-based training methodology, all of which combine to help consumers achieve their specific goals. With operations currently in London, Hong Kong, Singapore, Manchester and Marbella, Ultimate Performance aims to deepen its penetration in existing markets while extending its footprint to major cities across Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and North America - including Tokyo, Seoul, Sydney, Dubai, Los Angeles and New York - to broaden its presence and become a truly global player. In addition to personal training, Ultimate Performance is developing its own supplements line to meet the growing demand for quality nutrition intake. Thomas Pugh, Principal at Cassia Investments, said, "We are delighted to partner with Nick Mitchell, an industry icon in personal training who has played a vital role in bringing professionalism and sophistication to the health and wellness industry. We are attracted to Ultimate Performance because of its unique positioning, experienced management, successful track record in multiple cities and its potential for international expansion to meet the growing demand in health and fitness services in main cities across the globe. In particular, a growing awareness of the benefits of fitness, dietary improvements, rising incomes and governments' efforts to promote healthier lifestyles in order to combat rising levels of obesity and inactivity reinforce the strong growth prospects for the fitness industry in Asia, where gym attendance has had significantly lower penetration rates than in more developed economies -- this gap is beginning to tighten. The UP model is an educational process both inside and outside of the gym which we believe creates a unique engagement with its clients. The investment adds to our track record of successful investments in SMEs with proven business models, established market positions and significant growth potential. Cassia will create value by working closely with management to optimize its strategic direction and operating performance, while accelerating its expansion into new markets, particularly in Asia. " Nick Mitchell, founder of Ultimate Performance, said, "We are thrilled to introduce Ultimate Performance to global institutional investors, and are proud of our strong track record and prospects. Ultimate Performance was founded to create and implement the most effective consultative health and fitness model in the personal training industry. The investment will help Ultimate Performance to seize the immense opportunities arising from the rapidly growing industry, and introduce our services to more consumers worldwide.
