Multinational law firm Pinsent Masons has advised private equity house Sovereign Capital Partners on its management buyout (MBO) of digital transformation and cyber security consultancy Actica.
Guildford headquartered Actica works with predominantly central government clients, across the UK, as part of long-term, mission-critical programmes. The business enables clients to become more efficient, effective and secure through supporting areas including strategy creation, architecture development, digital transformation, cyber security optimisation, data analytics and business intelligence.
The deal provides key opportunities for Actica to scale its service offering, both organically and through strategic acquisition – diversifying its services and end markets in the process, while leveraging its current skill sets into other relevant sectors.
The Pinsent Masons London team advising Sovereign on this latest investment comprised a corporate team of partner Tom Leman, senior associate Josh Willis and associate Rebecca Shenkin. The debt finance team was led by partner Max Millington supported by associate Kirstyn Gleeson.
Tom Leman said: "We have worked with Sovereign for many years, advising on a multitude of exciting platform investments, bolt on transactions and exits along the way. We are delighted to play a role in this latest business and technology services sector investment into Actica and we wish the management team every success with their future plans for growth."
Emma Flin, Investment Director at Sovereign Capital Partners said: "We are delighted to have the opportunity to back the Actica team in its next phase of growth and see that there are real opportunities for Actica to scale its service offering both organically and through strategic acquisition. We are grateful to the Pinsent Masons team for their legal expertise in completing this investment.”
