Marbanc International to Deploy USD150 Million in Growth Companies Over Two Years
International private equity group Marbanc International Corporation has announced plans to deploy USD150 million in growth stage companies over the next two years. The group’s plans follow the recent appointment of former St George bank CEO Rhyll Gardner, ex Sydney Stock Exchange CEO Michael Go and seasoned California-based M&A lawyer Christopher Moritz to the company’s board of directors.
Marbanc International says it has appetite for transactions in the range of USD5-25 million and will be focusing in growth sectors including fintech, banking, big tech platforms, and distressed asset opportunities in real estate and other tangible assets. The target markets of interest include Australia, United States, India, South-East Asia and Europe.
A spokesperson for Marbanc International said:
“Markets have softened globally off the back of tightening credit which has created significant opportunities to fund good businesses and buy good assets at favourable valuations. Naturally there will be an uptick after this correction which Marbanc intends to position itself well to benefit from.”
In recent months Marbanc has been exploring opportunities to fund management buyouts and strategically deploy capital to restructure and strengthen distressed businesses impacted by rising interest rates. In particular, the group is seeking opportunities to take stakes in businesses which are readily scalable through effective customer acquisition strategies.
The group’s USD150 million capital allocation is estimated to fund around a dozen distinct opportunities, enabling the group to further diversify its interests in new markets. The recent board appointments bring deep expertise in corporate finance, merger, acquisition and legal expertise for the continued expansion of the group.
