According to recent research from CRN (Channel Reseller News), Horizon Capital qualifies as one of the top three private equity investors into the channel. The buy and build sector specialist house ranked second out of a possible 38 investors.

Horizon Capital counts a number of channel businesses in its specialist portfolio and has recently invested £40m into Modern Networks; a successful provider of IT Managed Services and Connectivity to the Real Estate and Construction industry.

Modern Networks provides IT Support, connectivity and communications in an easy to consume integrated solution to over 1800 sites across the UK.  From its support centre in Hitchin, the business delivers a high quality 24/7 service to users and serves a number of the largest commercial property managers in the UK.

Following a busy period of deal activity for the industry, channel business owners have been faced with a wide array of choice for investment partnership. Horizon Capital’s proven track record in the sector coupled with the strength of its buy and build investment approach make partnering with the firm an attractive proposition for channel businesses with exciting growth ambitions.

“We are delighted to qualify among the top three private equity investors for the channel industry. Our proven track record investing in the sector makes us an attractive partner for businesses with high growth ambitions. For example, our recent £40m investment in Modern Networks will enable it to pursue acquisitions alongside its successful organic growth and we are excited to be partnering with the business as we map that journey.”
