Humatica, the leading private equity specialist advisor for portfolio organisational effectiveness, has advised private equity firm Freshstream on its investment in a group containing the UK’s leading security technologists, including SmartWater® and Perimeter Intruder Detection (PID) Systems.
Designed to facilitate the shift from labour to technology-based security solutions in the construction, infrastructure and property management sector, the Group’s technologies combine PID System’s market leading remote mobile CCTV products with SmartWater’s proprietary forensic marking technology, recognised as one of the country’s most powerful crime deterrents.
These powerful risk mitigation solutions are supported by another division of the group, the Centre for Infrastructure and Asset Protection (CIAP™), which has recently been appointed as crime analysts for the police, to provide early warning of new and developing security risks to national critical infrastructure companies, such as BT and the National Grid.
Operating UK wide from its HQ in Telford, the group is a fast growing and market-leading business with a long and successful heritage in the UK and significant headroom to grow.
Humatica was engaged by Freshstream to provide Organisational Due Diligence advice for this transaction.
Patrick Mina, Humatica Partner and UK office head, commented:
“It was a pleasure to support Freshstream with pre-deal stage Organisational Due Diligence on SmartWater® and PID Systems where we helped to identify organisational areas of focus for the value creation plan. We are proud to have assisted Freshstream on this transaction and look forward to supporting their growth plans in the future.”
Reza Fardad, Freshstream’s Partner, added:
“We are delighted to have partnered with the team at SmartWater® and PID Systems during their next phase of growth. The group provides a truly differentiated offering and has a strong track record of delivering solutions that reduce crime and protect the property of its clients. We look forward to working with the team to develop the business further.”
The Humatica team was led by Patrick Mina, Partner and Head of the UK office.
