Quarterly Review Q4 18/19
In the last quarter, at Clearwater International we completed 22 transactions. Healthcare was the busiest sector completing 5 deals, 4 of which were in the care services sub-sector advising specialist residential care service providers and specialist clinics across Europe.
Last quarter also saw us advise: one of the UK’s largest food manufacturers, 2 Sisters Food Group on the sale of Green Isle Brands and Donegal Catch; leading IT services and solutions provider in the Nordics, Dustin on its acquisition of Inventio.IT; and BayWar.e, the leading renewable energy developer and supplier, on the sale of its biomethanetrading business BMH to bmp greengas.
We are delighted to have been shortlisted for a number of awards over the last quarter including Real Deals’ Private Equity Pan-European Corporate Finance House of the Year and HealthInvestorUK’s Corporate Financier of the Year.
We have also announced that we are sponsoring 27 year old solo sailor Antoine Oulhen, as he competes in the Mini-Transat 2019, a solo transatlantic yacht race starting from La Rochelle, France and finishing in Le Marin bay, Martinique in the Caribbean. Antoine will be taking part in a series of qualifying races throughout the summer starting with the PlastimoLorient Mini on April 12th. We will be supporting him throughout these qualifying races until the end of the Mini-Transat race in November so expect to hear more on this over the coming months.
