CBPE Capital acquires Anesco
GCA Altium provided debt and M&A advice to CBPE Capital on its acquisition of Anesco, the UK’s leading provider of energy efficiency solutions. The transaction underscores GCA Altium's leading position in the Cleantech sector.
Anesco is the UK’s leading energy efficiency solutions company. It works with local authorities, businesses, housing associations and homeowners across the UK to reduce their carbon emissions, providing a complete turnkey service from audits through to recommendations, installations and capital funding plans. Through this work, Anesco has helped to take over 40,000 people out of fuel poverty and it is now generating enough power for more than 45,000 homes, saving over 72,000 tonnes of carbon per year.
The acquisition by CBPE Capital will support Anesco in delivering its growth plans. Anesco has undergone a sustained period of expansion over the last couple of years, growing revenue from £21 million to over £100 million. As a result, Anesco was named the “UK’s fastest growing private business”, after taking the top spot in the prestigious Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 last year. It has also been recognised as one of the top 100 cleantech firms in the world and the second fastest growing cleantech company in Europe as part of Cleantech Connect Awards.
The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
