The Sunday Times, January 14 2018:
Fundraising off the table for Eat owner Lyceum Capital
Last week, Lyceum Capital wrote to potential investors to inform them that it would no longer be raising cash for a planned new £400m fund. The company blamed its troubles on Brexit, saying that international investors “are taking a more cautious approach”.
Lyceum has also had to slim down its ranks of dealmakers. Several top executives are thought to have left recently as part of a redundancy and restructuring process that will leave the buyout shop raising money “deal by deal”.
The move shocked the City as Lyceum is one of Britain’s oldest and most successful private equity firms.
According to its website, the firm has carried out more than 100 deals, including making an investment in the private nursery and pre-school operator ASQUITH. However, the firm has had a tough time recently as some of its portfolio companies have struggled.
