At last week’s Yorkshire Insider Deal Makers awards ceremony in Leeds, the sale of Infinity Works to Accenture was awarded ‘Deal of the Year (£25m and above)’. A well-deserved award that highlights the exceptional talent within Infinity Works, the fantastic growth they achieved during our investment period, and the hard work and expertise from all of the advisors who supported the deal.
Founded in 2014, Infinity Works is a leading digital transformation business that in 2020 was recognised by the Financial Times as one of the UK’s leading management consultants. Our investment partnership started in March 2019, where we backed the founders in a minority deal. We worked together to achieve significant growth for the business, helping with the systems, processes and investment in people to support continued rapid expansion, whilst ensuring that the unique business culture was maintained at scale. The acquisition by global professional services company, Accenture was then successfully completed in February 2021.
‘This award highlights Infinity Works’ fantastic growth story as well as the successful and enjoyable investment partnership we built with the founders and wider team. Infinity Works is an exceptional cloud digital transformation business, and we wish all the team the very best of future success. Congratulations to everyone involved for this well-deserved award and many thanks to the teams at Clearwater International and Addleshaw Goddard for the great advice and support.’ Richard Shaw, Partner
