Key Capital Partners successfully realise investment in EarthStream Global Limited
Technology talent solution businesses Xcede, TechStream and Etonwood have merged to form £100m revenue global business, TechStream Group.
The recent transaction has enabled KCP to realise its investment in EarthStream Global Limited and provide a return to KCP’s Fund VII. EarthStream, which was acquired by KCP in 2013, was merged into TechStream four years later following KCP’s original investment of £2m for a minority stake.
The newly formed group, which will be headquartered in London, will combine over 650 technology, engineering & digital consultants on client sites and 220 internal employees across nine global offices.
Funded by private equity firm Universal Partners and Investec Bank, TechStream Group will be led by TechStream founder Paul Beeke and Xcede CEO, William Jacques, as chief operating officer.
KCP is a leading investor in the smaller buy-out market, making equity investments of between £3m and £15m in profitable growing companies and has a strong reputation for deliverability as well as a track record of producing outstanding returns for its investors. Previous investments by the firm include Commhoist Logistics, Gear4Music and Sparta Global.
