Buyouts and Co-investments

Buyouts and Co-investments form the major part of Electra’s portfolio and consist of direct equity investments in nine private companies with an aggregate value of £264m. These include Hotter Shoes, TGI Fridays and Special Product Company, which together represent 95% of the portfolio value after disposals announced post year end (Photobox and Knight Square).


Secondary investments consist of limited partnership interests in third-party private equity funds purchased from investors exiting their positions prior to the end of the fund’s life. As a result of their relative maturity, secondary investments typically produce faster cash returns than Buyouts and Co-investments.


Debt investments consisted of loans to UK or international borrowers acquired in either the primary or the secondary market as either individual or portfolios of assets.

Fund investments

Fund investments consist of limited partnership interests in third party private equity funds, where Electra made a primary commitment to that fund.  No new primary commitments have been made since 2011.
