04 Sep OpCapita moves to new office
London, September 4 2015: OpCapita LLP, the European private equity firm, has moved into a new office at 2 Park Street, Mayfair, London W1K 2HX.
The move to a larger office to house OpCapita’s growing team follows the closing of its first dedicated fund, OpCapita Consumer Opportunities Fund LP, at the end of 2014. Alongside the office move, OpCapita has also relaunched its website (www.opcapita.com) to better communicate OpCapita’s investment strategy and capabilities.
In the last 12 months, OpCapita has increased its team from eight to 13. In the Spring, Helen Gaffney and Javier Gonzalez joined as Associates. Pre-Summer, Simon Millerchip re-joined as Chief Financial Officer and Head of Compliance, and Caroline Crowley was appointed to the newly created role of Director of Investor Relations.
The OpCapita Consumer Opportunities Fund LP has made two investments to date: NKD, the German discount clothing retailer which it acquired in March 2014; and La Sirena Alimentación Congelada, the leading frozen food retailer in Spain, which it acquired in December 2014. In June 2014, OpCapita successfully refinanced BUT, the French furniture and consumer electronics retailer it has owned since 2008. Game Digital, which OpCapita acquired out of administration in 2012, floated on the London Stock Exchange in June 2014 and has now entered the FTSE 250.
