Silverfern Holds 2017 Annual Meeting, Provides Overview

The Silverfern Group, co-managed by Clive Holmes and Reeta Holmes, has released its investments from 2016 at its 2017 Annual Meeting, providing an overview which revealed five new investments, three follow-on investments and three exits.

“Silverfern’s two largest, global networks- our base of investors spanning five continents and 23 countries, and our network of more than 50 operating executives and local operating partners- again provided us with a flow of private, off-market information that created unique investment opportunities,” Silverfern’s Clive Holmes said at the event. “We continue to add global diversification to our portfolio, while at all times remaining an informed, local investor.”

The new investments were in private equity and real estate, and included positions in the recapitalization of Temp RiverPark Apartments and the acquisitions of APR Energy plc, Continental Bakeries, Broad River Power Holdings and the Waste Services Group.  The firm also made three follow-on investments into APR Energy, O-Tex Holdings, Inc. and Sequitur Energy Resources, as well as three investment exits.

 “2016 proved to be extremely productive for Silverfern as we made five new platform investments, three follow-on investments, and achieved three investment exits globally,” said Reeta Co-Managing Partner Reeta Holmes. “The pace of our investments in middle market private equity, real estate and private debt globally has been accelerating, and we expect it will continue in 2017.”
