Case Study

Sale of iPrism Underwriting Agency to Bowmark Capital

The transaction was structured as a secondary management buyout, enabling the founder and management team to retain stakes in the business going forward whilst also receiving significant cash proceeds.

The deal has replaced iPrism’s previous Private Equity backers, Magenta Partners, with Bowmark Capital.

Founder, Gary Burke, had the following comment to make “This is the fourth transaction Eleanor has advised me on and as always she did an excellent job throughout – we couldn’t have done it without her”.  Eleanor previously advised Gary Burke on the trade sale of his previous company to Allianz (2006), the introduction of initial Private Equity investors into iPrism (2010) and the cash-out refinancing with RBS (2012).
