Jacksonville, Florida July 12, 2016 – The Silverfern Group, a leader in non-traditional global direct investment, today announced that it has completed a follow-on investment into Silverfern portfolio company APR Energy, becoming APR Energy’s third largest shareholder behind ACON Investments and Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited.
APR Energy, a global leader in the provision of large scale temporary electric power generation solutions and the world’s leading provider of fast-track, mobile turbine power, was taken private in February 2016 by a consortium led by ACON Investments, Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited, Albright Capital Management, and APR Management, in partnership with Silverfern.
Following completion of the investment, Silverfern Co-Managing Partner Clive Holmes said: “Silverfern is pleased to continue its strong support for APR Energy Founder and CEO John Campion and the APR Energy team. Building on our experience from our initial successful investment in APR Energy in 2011, and consistent with our non-traditional investment strategy, as APR Energy’s third largest shareholder we anticipate continuing to add value to APR Energy’s business by leveraging our global network of investor and business relationships, particularly in the emerging markets where APR Energy is focused.”
The APR Energy investment represents Silverfern’s fifth follow-on investment and tenth global investment in the past 18 months.
