M&A advisory Equiteq has advised Infrata on its majority investment from private equity firm Lonsdale Capital Partners. Equiteq acted as exclusive financial advisor to the infrastructure investment consultancy.
Infrata is a consulting firm which works with clients to advise on technical, commercial, demand, economic and ESG-focused matters in the infrastructure sector. Founded in 2011, the London headquartered firm is looking to expand this global reach further in 2022, and has secured new investment to help it fulfil those ambitions from Lonsdale Capital Partners.
Having secured Lonsdale’s backing, Infrata will now target further scaling in North America and continental Europe as well as the development of existing and complementary business lines, especially those focused on rail, aviation and ESG. The shareholders of Infrata were advised on the deal by a team from professional services firm Equiteq – led by Managing Director Jerome Glynn-Smith and Director Paul Beaumont.
Commenting on Equiteq’s role in the transaction, Alonzo Guzman, Managing Director of Infrata said, “We are grateful for the long-term support and investment we’ve had from Equiteq, through our various growth stages and all the way through to flawless private equity process execution.”
With offices in Europe, the US, Asia and Australia, Equiteq is one of the world’s larger M&A consultancies dedicated exclusively to the professional services landscape. The deal advisory firm also recently advised Integrity360 and its private equity backer August Equity on the acquisition of Caretower.
Speaking on the deal between Infrata and Lonsdale, Glynn-Smith and Beaumont added, “We’re thrilled to have advised Infrata and this inspiring group of global infrastructure advisory entrepreneurs to reach readiness and deliver their first UK Private Equity investment round.”
