Graphite Capital

Graphite is a specialist provider of private equity finance to mid-market companies in the UK. Graphite focuses on management buy-outs, expansion capital and turnaround opportunities. It invests in transactions with enterprise values of 25 million to 200 million. Graphite manages 1.5 billion through four private funds and the publicly-quoted Graphite Enterprise Trust PLC.

In late 2013, Graphite Capital raised 500 million for its eighth fund, Graphite Capital Partners VIII. The ICR transaction is the second investment in the fund. Last December, Graphite backed City & County Healthcare Group, the UKs fourth largest home care provider. The previous fund, Graphite Capital Partners VII, has made investments in a variety of industry sectors, including Education Personnel, the leading provider of supply teachers and support staff to schools in England and Wales; London Square, a fast-growing house-builder focused on developing prime sites within the M25; Rex Restaurant Associates, operator of The Wolseley, The Delaunay, Brasserie Zdel and Colbert restaurants; and Hawksmoor, which runs four successful, high-end steak restaurants. Successful sales include luxury shoe retailer Kurt Geiger and global provider of talent acquisition and management services Alexander Mann Solutions.
