US private equity predator Advent considering swoop on yet another British tech firm, according to sources

Sep 18, 2022

September 18, 2022 - Advertisement - US private equity predator Advent International is considering acquiring another British tech firm, according to The Mail on Sunday. - Advertisement - The buyout giant is believed to be part of the GB Group, a fraud prevention software company, sparking rumors of a possible bidding war. Other stakeholders are Hg, KKR, Cinven and Permira. - Advertisement - - Advertisement - Concerns: private equity firm Advent bought up Cobham and Ultra Electronics Advent will be a controversial contender following a controversial takeover of pioneering aerospace and defense groups Cobham and Ultra Electronics, which many MPs, pundits and the military have called for blocking. The £1.5 billion Cheshire-based GB Group was founded in 1989 and is one of the largest companies listed on the AIM market. It provides anti-fraud technologies for corporations including Revolut, which provides online banking services, and skin care group Charlotte Tilbury. The company confirmed this month that it is considering a cash offer from private equity firm GTCR. HOW MONEY CAN HELP How to choose the best (and cheapest) Isa stocks and units and the right platform for self-investment The Chicago fan has until 5:00 pm October 4 to make a firm offer or leave. One source said GTCR is in a strong position because of its experience in the sector as it owned British rival Callcredit, adding that GTCR has a long relationship with GB Group and is confident in financing the deal. But another source said it could end up in a bidding war with private equity firms actively considering bids. Interest in the GB Group follows a wave of possible proposals for UK tech firms over the summer. These include cybersecurity firm Darktrace, MicroFocus International and Aveva, the industrial software provider FTSE100. US bidders are scouring the UK looking for deals as the falling pound makes it cheaper for them to buy companies. Advent has built a reputation for scouting UK firms with a £4bn deal that saw Cobham, a developer of pioneering aerial refueling systems, go private in 2020. He pledged to become a long-term investor after outrage from critics such as the former head of the Royal Navy, Admiral Lord West, led to restrictions on the deal. But within 18 months, he divided and sold most of the firm. It recently completed a £2.6bn takeover of Ultra Electronics, which makes sonar buoys to search for submarines. New concerns have been raised about Ultra’s future after Advent recently told employees that some of its divisions are “not the best British-flagged,” according to The Sun. The Mail on Sunday reports that Advent International’s UK division saw a 150% increase in profits. It made £14.7m in 2021, up from £5.9m in 2020, according to the latest reports. All parties have been contacted for comment. TOP DIY INVESTMENT PLATFORMS
